Mission, Evangeline Hotel, Maze Rock, Disney, etc

Today I'm posting three photos of Mission San Juan Capistrano taken in 1923. All three come from the Pierce Collection, which is held by the Old Courthouse Museum. The one above shows the Serra Chapel. The other two are fairly self explanatory, except to mention that the girl sitting on the fountain is Helen Pierce.
The historic Evangeline Hotel (1906) in Huntington Beach has dropped in price again,... to only a million dollars.
The Bowers Museum blog has added posts about the business ledger of Don Tomás Yorba and the "Maze Rock" from Trabuco Canyon.
Major Pepperidge recently posted some 1971 images of Lion Country Safari and the Japanese Village & Deer Park.
Stuff From The Park recently added posts about Knott's Berry Tales and about an event I'm sad I wasn't around to see: "Dixieland at Disneyland." Can you imagine getting to see Louis Armstrong, Kid Ory, The Firehouse Five Plus Two, and all those other talented musicians perform for the (then) low fee to enter Disneyland?
And speaking of Disneyland, Vintage Disneyland Tickets recently posted some great Disneyland concept art from a 1955 McCall's magazine.
