Laguna Beach, Linbrook Bowl, Anaheim, Huell, etc

Today's photo shows the Aliso Auto Camp, south of Laguna Beach, in the 1930s.
Yesterland recently added a feature on the old Buffalo Ranch in Newport Beach.
The Linbrook Bowl, (at Brookhurst St at Lincoln in Anaheim) - one of O.C.'s last Googie buildings and a fine bowling establishment - celebrated its 50th anniversary on Saturday.
On a related note, there will be a Huell-watching party at Linbrook Bowl, Sep 14, at 7pm. Come see the premiere (actually the second showing) of the new Anaheim episode of Huell Howser's California's Gold on a big screen TV. Cheap food and drinks will be available for cash only (no plastic).
Speaking of Huell,... He was back in O.C. this week for an interview with Gustavo Arrelano. (How's that for an interesting duo?) The interview should appear in the next issue of the OC Weekly.

Welcome back Chris. That's an interesting pic of Aliso Beach. Thanks for the posting!

Gracias for the plug, Chris. Ol' Huell and I got along swell, as we both love amazing, overlooked stories. Heck, he came to the OC Weekly over that "reputable" daily, the Orange County Register. To paraphrase the man, "That's A-MAY-ZING!" Issue out mañana, with two blog posts to come later.
