Back in the 1950’s, it was illegal to bring fruit into the state of California.  During this time the state was having problems with insects / pests coming into the state and destroying their fruit crops.  So they built these inspection stations at all of the main entrances and you had to stop your car, get out and go in and declare whatever fruits or vegetables that you had in your possession.   I do not know whatever became of this or when it was stopped, but I know that someone out there knows something about this and can share what they know about this.  I just thought that this was an interesting image … just another of my father’s ” through my front windshield ” type photos.  There have been several well-known “art ” photographers have had whole careers doing only this type of photography … go figure.  Thanks for looking and let me hear back from somebody about these California Inspection Stations … Frank
