Pie ‘N Burger

Roadside Americana

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 200mm ISO 250 3-bkts f/11 Lr4, HEP2, TpzSim; PsCS6

Pie ‘N Burger has been a locals institution seemingly forever in Pasadena, California.  It is practically next door to Caltec and likely a lot of science and engineering students and teachers  have had either pie or burgers or both there during its tenure.  I ate their once, years ago when Judy introduced it to me, my recollection, however, was one of feeling underwhelmed with both the pies and the burgers.  But it’s a cozy little embodiment of a certain genre.

Mimi’s Cafe, Chino Hills, California.  A chain, but even a chain has its virtues, good breakfasts, muffins and the clam chowder is very decent (when hot and fresh).

Renwick House

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 26mm ISO 200 3- bkts f/11 Lr4, HEP2, TpzSim; PsCS6

After ten years of marriage and the death of her husband, Helen Goodwin Renwick left Iowa and brought her son to Claremont, California.  Mrs. Renwick then built her house in 1900 where she raised her son and became a philanthropist to Pomona College.  Mrs. Renwick died at the age of 86 in July, 1930, bequeathing her home to Pomona College.  From the obituary published July 31, 1930 in the Claremont Courier  I found this charming line about Mrs. Renwick:

Following a romance of unusual charm she was married to William Renwick in 1879 and together they enjoyed their home and a companionship in Davenport, Iowa for 10 years.

The Renwick House now serve as the offices of the Pomona College Annual Giving department.

Smiley Hall

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 20mm ISO 320 3-bkts f/11 :Lr4, TpzSim; PsCS6

Albert K. Smiley Hall (1908).  The first residence hall built on the campus of Pomona College, Claremont, California.  This is a great campus for walking around and enjoying and appreciating the lush landscaping that the college buildings are set in.  Clean and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of the Southern California megalopolis.
