Capo Beach, Camp Pendleton, anteaters & Knott's

Here are a couple old postcard images of Capistrano Beach (now part of Dana Point) from Tom Pulley's amazing collection. Both are undated, but I'm going to take a wild stab and guess they're from the 1940s.

The San Juan Capistrano Historical Society's Christmas Tour of Camp Pendleton will take place on Dec. 9. The bus will leave the O’Neill Museum, 31831 Los Rios St., in San Juan Capistrano at 9am. Tour stops include the Ranch House and Bunk House, the Mechanized Museum, lunch at the South Mesa Club, and the LCAC hovercraft facility. The bus will return San Juan around 4:00 to 4:30. Reservations are mandatory. Call (949) 493-8444. Seats on the bus are going fast.

Historian Phil Brigandi will speak on "Walter Knott and the Early Years of Knott's Berry Farm," at the San Dimas Historical Society’s Fall Dinner at the San Dimas Canyon golf course clubhouse, 2100 Terrebonne Ave. on Nov. 12 at 6pm. Click here for information on how to sign up. It’s $25 for non-members. Reservations must be made by Monday.

UCI’s Special Collections & Archives now has it’s own blog: Anteater Antics. Their entries showcase random items from university collections you might not otherwise see. The items have been selected because they are "historic, nostalgic, or just plain made us smirk." Lots of good stuff!

Ken at OutsideTheBerm has been outdoing himself lately. In his latest post he shared an update on Chris Merritt's forthcoming Knott's Preserved book, as well as some early artwork by Paul von Klieben.
