O.C. Historical Society update, OCC, etc.

Today's image shows a construction project in Santa Ana Canyon in the 1930s. Unfortunately, no other identifying information came with the photo. Undoubtedly, this area is now full of houses, strip malls, and cars waiting to get onto the 91 Fwy.

CORRECTION: The Orange County Historical Society's October 11 meeting will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church in Orange at 7pm. Althought Ronald Glazier will speak about the Past, Present and Future of the Santa Ana Zoo, the meeting will NOT be held at the zoo.

For their following meeting, on Nov. 8, the Orange County Historical Society will meet at the new Muzeo, 241 S. Anaheim Blvd, in Anaheim.

For those who haven't seen it before, Orange Coast College has posted the text from Harwood and Kimes' "Tumbleweeds To Roses", a history of the school, on their website. This is especially cool because it's not always easy to track down the original book.

The Bowers Museum blog's latest entry is Henri Joseph Penelon's famous portrait of Don Jose Andres Sepulveda (circa 1856).
