Vintage View: An artistic look at a 10-year-old Lodi
Lodi, as it looked in 1879, is depicted in this E.J. Munch painting. Lodi was just 10 years old then. The detailed painting shows the view from the east side of the railroad tracks, looking northwest toward Sacramento Street and Downtown. The passenger train station is shown on the left, on the west side of the tracks just behind the locomotive. The Hotel Lodi is across Sacramento Street from the station, and Sacramento Street businesses stretch to the north. The train freight depot is the large building on the east side of the tracks. On the right, further down Main Street stands the tall Lodi Flouring Mill. This painting, considered an accurate record of Lodi's early appearance, is on display at the Lodi Public Library.
