All three of today's images show Villa Park in December 1965, and come from the Orange County Archives. The first image (above) shows Bruno's Villa Park Market near Wanda Rd. and the railroad tracks.
Here's Villa Park High School in its second year of existance. Sorry about the obstruction in the foreground, but I know our Spartan friends (know to their rivals as "the weenies on the hill") will appreciate this photo anyway.
Here's a packing house adjacent to Wanda Rd. There was still enough citrus to keep the packers busy, but notice the sign pointing toward a new development called "Oakwood Park." If Mid-Century Orange County had a theme, it was "agriculture giving way to suburbia."
