Today's image is a 1950s postcard from Brea. Probably the best place to find old postcards (locally) is Hal Lutsky's Vintage Paper Fair. This event will return to the Glendale Civic Auditorium, 1401 N. Verdugo Rd, in Glendale on May 31 and June 1.
The Old Towne Preservation Association (OTPA) in Orange will hold their next meeting tomorrow, May 21, 7pm, at the Orange Public Library, 407 E. Chapman, in Orange. The topic is, "How Our New Main Library Archives & Preservation Online Can Help You." I understand the history room at Orange Public a good collection and staff. But as long as their archives charge an $85-per-photo use fee, their helpfulness will remain somewhat limited.
The OTPA is also looking to fill positions on their board for 2009. If you're interested, call them at (714) 639-6840.
The Santa Ana Historic Preservation Society recently posted back issues of their newsletter (1989-2008) to their website.
