Roadside O.C., etc.

Yes, I have a soft spot for mid-Century roadside architecture. Today’s image is an architect’s illustration of the Aztec Motel at 7620 Beach Blvd, in Buena Park, next to the Medieval Times dinner theater. The building still stands.

There’s an 11th-hour effort afoot to save the landmark Leisure World globe in Laguna Woods. Couldn't they just cut the "Leisure World" lettering off the globe and avoid all this legal unpleasantness? (I don't think you can copyright a generic image of planet earth.) Links follow:

Today’s Register article about the Santa Ana YMCA Building had some accuracy problems, but the historical information was fairly interesting.
