San Clemente Pier, Mary Garcia, & Black history

Here's one of the many old O.C. postcards I aquired yesterday. This one shows the San Clemente pier in 1960. My grandfather was a great fan of the fishing excursions that left from the end of this pier.
The next meeting of the O.C. Mexican American Historical Society (OCMAHS) will be held Feb. 23, 10am-Noon at SolArt Gallery, 511 E. Santa Ana Blvd., Santa Ana. Author Mary Garcia will present “Researching the Barrio: The Role of the Mexican American Community Historian.” Mary recently published Santa Ana’s Logan Barrio: Its History, Stories, and Families.
The Register recently ran an article about the aforementioned Black History Month display at the Old Orange County Courthouse.
