Description - Historic Photos of Orange County by Leslie Anne Stone

Perpetual sunshine, palm trees, miles of unbroken beaches, yachts, cliff-top mansions, millionaires--these are the images of Orange County that come to mind for many people, and there is much truth in this depiction, for Orange County is a place of boundless natural wonders that attracts more than 25 million tourists a year. However, the full story of Orange County is far more complex. It's a story of Juaneno Indians, conquistadors, Franciscan padres, rancheros, wildcatters, artists, and filmmakers. Historic Photos of Orange County offers some 200 images drawn from the county's fascinating past, from the mission ruins of San Juan Capistrano, to the turn-of-the-century celery fields of Westminster, to the eye-popping fantasia of a young Disneyland. By East Coast standards, Orange County is a relative baby--just over a century old--and tiny compared with most California counties; but its population is second only to neighboring Los Angeles County and growing every day. This volume captures the story of Orange County's evolution from a sleepy backwater suburb of Los Angeles to an international tourist destination.
