    Okay so that, plus the Orange County Archives photostream just made my day.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

    I love pics from the recent past. Man, how much life has changed since then.

    Holy shit. My forefathers hung from the those awnings.

    I miss the Mesa. I remember riding my bike to see matinee movies there. We took the residential streets and avoided Newport Blvd. It always seemed big and dangerous.

    Any one of those cars could have belonged to my folks. They moved to Newport in the ’40s and lived just a stone’s throw from this photo location.

    That’s pretty cool. I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on with the street and right-of-way and my memory of the area. Is that a one-way Newport on the right (with maybe the other direction on the far-far-right?) and the little strip from the Rock-n-Java to the sex shop on the left?
