Here we see a lone automobile headed west, towards Truckee, Ca., while driving on the Victory Highway at Boca. The Victory Highway in this area follows the route of the later Highway 40. This photo would be from after 1921 when the Victory Highway, a monument to WWI soldiers, was organized.
We can see the railroad bridge over the little Truckee River at right, and further to the right what appears to be a flume, likely coming from the old Boca Ice Company. The car is traveling to the spot where Boca Brewing had its operation, by this time long gone. We can also see a Southern Pacific train in the background.
