Del Taco, Orange Community Hist. Soc, trains, etc.

Okay,... So this postcard is hardly serious history. But after four entries about the preservation of a single sign, I figure we all need a little breather to lighten the mood.
The postcard image above shows Del Taco #9, at 2320 E. 4th St., in Santa Ana, as it appeared on its grand opening in Dec. 1969. (How did they get the giant taco and Del Burger to float over their restaurant?) Gotta love those 49-cent tacos and crinkle-cut fries!
Del Taco fan, local historian, and County Archivist Phil Brigandi will be the speaker at the Orange Community Historical Society at their Annual Dinner on Jan. 24th, 6pm at the Turnip Rose. This event will mark the group's 35th anniversary, and Phil's talk will be a look back at the history of OCHS's many "Projects & Personalities." Hopefully, the Society will update their website soon with more details.
Speaking of annual dinners, more information about the Costa Mesa Historical Society's Annual Dinner, Jan. 19, is now available online.
The winter edition of Hot Rail, the newsletter of the Fullerton Railway Plaza Assn and the So Cal Scenic Railway Assn is now available online as a PDF.
