This was located on the N side of El Toro Road between the tracks and what is now Jeronimo Rd., almost across from the fire station.

You can see the post office boxes on the right. That was the El Toro Post Office in its entirety. This was the last chance for gas before heading out into the canyons. They even sold Levis, socks, dungarees, work boots and overalls. Everything for the well-dressed citrus farmer.

ETR was two lanes back then. I remember this as if it were yesterday.

Don't look at the link, but let's see if you Orange County folks can guess what this is? You'll have to follow the link below to hunt down the rest of the pictures of this particular site and some others, like the Cawson Ostrich fram in South Pasadena.

Careful. If you break off a hunk of that plaque he's been carefully cultivating in his arteries and it lodges in his thick head somewhere, we're sending his debilitated keister to your house so you can spoon-feed him watered-down gruel.

Dang many of those pics seem to be memories from outside of a Greyhound window!

CurtesyFlush,

I'm looking for some pictures or knowledge about the old white house that is where stonehill rd. is now (San juan Capistrano). I remember passing this house all the time as a kid on the way to the beach to watch my dad surf or wipeout (lol) and I wanted to go to this house soooo bad but was discouraged (my parents are forever not forgiven Unfortunately one day passing by I noticed they tore the house down, including priceless orchards, and they made it into a horribly ugly and expensive car dealership "row". Eventually stone hill was put in and of course recently a hotel put up on the land adjacent. There is even talk (for the last 10+ years) of putting a home depot on the "lower rosan ranch" or LRR property. I am very interested in the history of what that property and who owned it. I am not one of the Original Orange County or Old Orange County residents but my family line is. Unfortunately death and loss of photos/memory/information has been dispersed. I do have friends and info on dana point but NOBODY can remember this particular property I speak of! I was obsessed as a kid with that house. At the time while passing on the freeway you could barely see the white exterior through the trees (pretty sure it was abandoned for some time). I think there was some story among the kids about how nobody came out.

Needless to say I am very sad about what Orange County has developed into politically and otherwise. Very big loss for the kids growing up today. I can't drive on the 405 North or the 5 North without shaking my head at these huge 14 - 16 ft walls containing poorly built (and expensive homes) with construction companies that are just as guilty as the city. I foresee nothing good coming for Orange County. The opportunities that we had were endless. Urban planners should know better. Wild rivers and irvine meadows is gone or on the way out soon due to MORE housing being built. It is horribly incredible.

Any info would be appreciated. I would be happy to post word for word the stories like that of the christening of Dana Point (the people involved), the builder of the harbor, and many photos from the 60's - 70's. All photos from my grandpa from an earlier time (in San Clemente / Orange County, Los angeles, and Texas) have been pilfered by an outside family when he passed recently (hopefully we will get them back one day).
