Today's photos take us back to Buena Park as it looked in the teens. The first photo (top) is a view up Grand Ave. from the Southern Pacific Railroad tracks in 1914. The second photo was taken in front of the old Whitaker General Store (by that point, owned by Perry & Co.) in 1911. The store also served as the town's post office.
The Buena Park Historical Society's annual "Old Tyme Picnic" will be held April 12, 11:30am to 3:30pm at the Whitaker-Jaynes Estate Park, 6631 Beach Blvd. (Park in church lot off 10th St.) In addition to the picnic itself, the historic Whitaker Jaynes House, Bacon House and Stage Stop Motel will be open for tours.
