Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
In 1989, the high school moved from its Birch Street location, which is now across from the Brea Marketplace, to 789 Wildcat Way in the north end of Brea.
Looking over Brea from near the intersection of Lambert Road (center, running from left to right) and Brea Boulevard (curves as it runs southward). The plant for Kirkhill Rubber Co. is in the center, just north of the railroad tracks. Brea-Olinda Union High School (center, background) is located on the north side of Birch Street, and a few oil derricks are present in the background. Some new housing developments and large citrus groves are seen throughout the image. Photograph dated November 22, 1955.
