Christmas at the Orange Circle 1937

If you have been fortunate enough to see the Orange Circle at Christmas time, you know how magical Olde Towne Orange looks all decked out with the holiday spirit. I recently came across the following photo of the Orange Circle from 1937. It is taken from Chapman Avenue approaching the Circle. You can see the Wells Fargo Bank (which now also houses one of the two Starbucks at the Circle) on the right side of the photo. I love the huge tree that the city sponsors every year, and as you can see in the photo, they have always loved big ones.
