Anaheim, 1958, water, Japanese Village & Orange

I took these photos as last night's Anaheim Historical Society Annual Dinner at the Linbrook Bowl (which turns 50 this summer!) It was a great event with some wonderful people. And speaking of wonderful, check out Jane Newell's 1958 ensemble! (She was the featured speaker for the evening.)
The O.C. Agricultural & Nikkei Heritage Museum and the Placentia Historical Committee will hold a special program together on June 22. The subject will be the history of water in Orange County. Carl Nelson of the American Society of Civil Engineers (and former director of Orange County Public Works will be the featured speaker. Contact the museum for more information.
Viewliner Ltd has posted some great photos of Buena Park's Japanese Village & Deer Park from 1968. He's also posted a wonderful 1958 aerial photo of Disneyland.
After a long rehab (and just in time for summer), the old Orange Plunge reopened in Hart Park today.
