There’s an unassuming, casual vernacular to the roadside “townettes” that populated the space between Los Angeles and the heavier Mojave. Mostly supplanted by housing tracts now, Hollywood-worthy diners and supply shops used to crowd the ragged edge of Sierra Highway, serving the populace of Santa Clarita and the Antelope Valley pre-freeway.

It would be easy to get nostalgic about the idealized and the quaint–but like all things, lines of fluidity change. The popular falls away to be renewed, cycling and recycling.
