Today's photo shows Del's Service Station and Del Georgio Store in Lansdowne, circa 1925. You can add Lansdowne to your list of Orange County communities that disappeared. It was established in the early 1920s, near the corner of Commonwealth and Magnolia St in what is now part of Fullerton. In the late 1920s the area was renamed Fuller Park. (Thanks to Phil's place names book for the details.)
ConAgra Foods just sold the Knott's Berry Farm line of preserves to Smucker's. The plant in Placentia will close and all 90 employees will be laid off. Knott's preserves have been produced and sold in Orange County for at least 73 years, beginning with the first jars in Cordelia Knott's kitchen in Buena Park.
