San Clemente, Bradford House, Olive, Lorson's, etc

Here are two 1950s images of the San Clemente Pier from two totally different sources. The one above is from 1956 and was taken by someone in the County Planning Dept. The photo below comes from a slightly earlier postcard. (You can see a building being built in the 1956 shot that does not appear in the one below.)
Daralee has added a new article about Louis Schorn to her Olive Through the Ages website.
There will be a rally to save Triangle Park and the old Main Street Library in Downtown Huntington Beach this Sunday, Oct. 4, at 2pm.
There's another article in the Register today about the closing of Lorson's Books in Fullerton.
The Register also features an article about the Bradford House in Placentia, and how items of historical interest turn up in the darnedest places.

chris - do you have any other info regarding the rally to save the main street library? you mentioned 2pm, is it starting at the library/triangle park?

i thought i'd post all the info on my facebook page and see if we can't get a few more 'young' people out there that haven't been very proactive on these issues.


take care,

Glad to hear you'll be there! Yes, the rally will be AT the park/library.

Why does the older photo look like everything is newer? The one "below" looks like things are falling apart.

CP: I'm guessing they did some maintenance on the pier. said...

Hope you have a blog report on the rally soon Chris. I was not able to go but I hope it went well.
