Laguna Beach, Anaheim, Fiscus cottage & July 4th

Happy Independence Day! Today's photo shows a very busy Laguna Beach on July 4, 1924. The inset image shows a detail from the photo so you can read some of the signs. (As always, click on the images to enlarge.)
Another win for the good guys! The ranch foreman's cottage from the Fiscus Ranch in Anaheim has been saved from the bulldozer, thanks to the City's Preservation Office, and the vocal support of the Anaheim Historical Society, the Anaheim Neighborhood Association and the ANA's Historic Preservation Committee. Cynthia Ward has posted more details on her Anaheim Life blog.

Good news about the Fiscus House. I passed by there last week while documenting the former Tops Motel located just across Harbor.

I snapped a picture of the house just as the workers were demo-ing the chimney.

Thanks for your always interesting OC updates!
