You can’t miss it. Driving from Los Angeles to Palm Springs right off the Cabazon exit of the I-10 is where you see the giant dinosaurs next to a big sign that says “EAT”. Sculptor and retired Knott's Berry Farm portrait artist Claude K. Bell was the owner of the Wheel Inn Cafe in the 1960s, and started the project to build Dinny and Rex, the dinosaurs, in 1964, as a way to draw attention to his eatery. I made this photo using a Nikon FM2 and Kodak Kodacolor II 35mm negative film and a Nikor 24mm fix focus lens. December 1984. | Click image for Comments. | Home | Browse All Photos
