Drive-through trees, Olvera Street, Knott's Berry Farm, and lots of other images and postcards of California at Image Archaeology.

The Bernheimer was a nice read, plus all the Spanish Revival stars' homes.

Loved seeing the pictures of people driving horse-drawn-carriages through the trees. Nice reminder that people were pretty much the same in the past as they are today.

Umm ... the Wawona tree fell over due to natural causes; Olvera Street and Knott's Berry Farm are still doing quite well.

I was hoping against hope that there were images from Santa's Village in there, and lo and behold, the last link was just that. Thank you for posting this!

I remember seeing the rotting remains of Santa's Village in Scott's Valley driving north over highway 17 when I was a child. The exit is still named Santa's Village Road, even though the place was razed long before I was old enough to facilitate sneaking into the place myself.
