Brea street name changes and April Fools Day

By now, you should have figured out that my last post was a photoshopped April Fools Day gag, and that we still can't find a real photo of Walter Knott and Walt Disney together. If you - by some miracle - know where to find one, drop me a line.
Meanwhile, the photo above depicts Pomona Ave in Brea, around 1914. Today, Pomona Ave is called Brea Blvd. A few more Brea Street name changes follow:
  • Deodora (in Brea) and Ocean (in Fullerton & La Habra) are now part of Lambert Rd.
  • Brea-Olinda is now Birch St.
  • Cedar is now part of Imperial Highway
Feel free to post a comment if you know others.
