Along Old Highway 80 in San Diego County, California.

Shot with a Canon 6D and Sigma 15mm EX DG lens at 20 sec f-2.8 ISO 3200. Inside of the building illuminated with a Nichia 219BT LED.

Amos Buckman staked a claim at Indian Spring and started bottling water in the 1880s. The springs provided naturally carbonated water tinted red from the high iron content and containing lithium; Buckman Springs Lithia Water sold well for over fifty years! Winifred Buckman took over operations after her father’s death in 1898 but the plant was closed when she passed in 1946. The construction of Interstate 8 nearby dried up the springs and bypassed the town. Bottles from the bottling plant are highly sought by collectors.
