Unloading Sugar Beets, Oxnard, CA

Going by the brick structure, this is the Oxnard brothers' sugar plant. Located very close to where the current Ventura County Ry connects to the SP, within rock throwing distance to the Oxnard train station. Plant was torn down, I believe, in the 1950s.

An industry probably served by the Southern Pacific.

   Nice view of a string of Blackburn beet racks, an HO model of which is now being produced by Owl Mountain Models.
