Buena Park, Brea, Fountain Valley & Wintersburg

Today's photo depicts the Telephone Company building in Buena Park, probably around the late 1920s. If only office buildings were this attractive today.
Now that the kids are back in school and swim classes are over, the Brea Municipal Plunge (1929) will begin a rehabilitation process that will incorporate modern technology and ADA standards while simultaneously bringing back more of its original appearance. Sounds good to me.
I saw a huge stack of Dann Gibb's book, Images of America: Fountain Valley, at Costco (Fountain Valley) yesterday. If you don't already have a copy, now's your chance to get one on the cheap.

The movement to save the Wintersburg Japanese Presbyterian Church (1910) continues to build steam, but there's nothing new to report yet.
