If you’ve enjoyed the vintage photos we’ve shared of Southern California dating back to
1950, 1960, and 1970, then perhaps you’ll want to head down memory lane again to glimpse a few more photos of SoCal from the sixties. So many fascinating moments captured from the past!
1. Everyone's favorite library circa 1960 -- the Bookmobile that was provided by the Santa Ana Public Library.
2. Whether you visited the Orange County Fairgrounds in the sixties or you just drove by, there's no question that this roadside signage photographed in 1963 is one you might remember.
3. A rare look at this Orange County motel from the 1960s -- The Sky Palm Motel located in Tustin. Although it's still standing today, it's fun to see what it looked like back in its heyday.
4. Long before Hamilton Avenue in Huntington Beach was filled with strip malls and residential housing, this stretch of land back in 1960 was a quiet rural drive. My how things have changed!
5. A view of Dana Point in the 1960s before the construction of the Dana Point Harbor. Sixty years later and things sure have changed.
6. Another shot of Dana Point with a view of Monarch Bay Plaza captured in 1966.
7. Back in 1967 when this image was captured, what is now known as Angel Stadium of Anaheim was once called the Anaheim Stadium.
8. This old Knott's Berry Farm billboard in Buena Park (circa 1962) located along Highway 39 may bring back a few memories of some fun family times.
