Brigandi, Geivet, Dana Point, the Fun Zone, etc.

Today's image again shows the old Orange County Hospital & Poor Farm. (Yes, that's actually what it was called.) Go see the 1914 hospital building (amid the towers of UCI Medical Center) while you still can.
The Old Courthouse Museum Society's next meeting will be March 19, noon, at the Old Orange County Courthouse. Historian Phil Brigandi will give talk on "Orange County in the 1940s and 1950s" featuring images "from the Bob Geivet Collection." Lunch will be $7. Please make reservations in advance by mailing your name and payment to John Sorenson, 14932 Gainford Cir., Irvine, 92604. (Checks payable to Old Courthouse Museum Society.)
The OutsideTheBerm blog recently posted rare interior photos of the Balboa Fun Zone's late "Scary Dark Ride." Also, enjoy a look back at the Buffalo Ranch in Newport Beach.

The Dana Point Historical Society will hold walking tours of historic Dana Point on March 1, 2, 8 and 9. The tours will begin at 2pm at Bella Bazaar at the corner of PCH and Blue Lantern. These tours coincide with the City’s annual Festival of Whales.
Finally, I wanted to share another website I found relating to Johnie's Broiler, which I should mention was originally known as Harvey's Broiler. (See yesterday's post.)
