Anaheim High School

The Anaheim Historical Society will present a history of the pipe organ at Anaheim High School on March 22, 7pm-10pm, in the school's Cook Auditorium, 811 W. Lincoln Ave. AHS Art Instructor Brad Pettigrew, who is also a member of the City's Historical Preservation Committee, will present a slide show. A member of the O.C. Theater Organ Society (whose members restored the Wurlitzer at Fullerton Union High School's Plummer Auditorium) will also speak.
Today's photos are all images of Anaheim High School from the postcard collection of Tom Pulley. Note that the school has been through multiple incarnations.
Anaheim High School was first established in 1898. The image at the top of this post shows the version of the High School that was built in 1901. The middle image (with the cars) comes from the early 1920s. The black and white photo below shows the school a couple decades later.

This last/current structure was built after the 1933 earthquake damaged the earlier buildings.

"Strange activity" in secluded parts of a high school campus? How unusual. ;-)

Seriously folks,... Occam's Razor: Learn it, live it, love it.
