The postcard above (Newport Beach in the 1950s) is one of more than 70 images added to the "Orange County History" group on Flickr in the past 24 hours. The pool includes old photos of O.C., photos of historic sites around O.C., and photos of local historians and historical groups. Go check it out. Better yet, join the group and add stuff from your own collection. Although the group was initially set up for the Orange County Heritage Coordinating Council, it has morphed into a fun way for anyone and everyone to share their interest in our local history. (Thanks to everyone who's already joined and/or contributed!)
If you'd like O.C. History Roundup to promote your O.C.-history-focused books, projects, or events, please send me an email with all the pertinant details. I'm generally more than happy to share your news with the several hundred people who read this blog each day.
