Irvine, CA – Old Town Irvine (HDR)

Old Town Irvine_Talke
One morning while HDR’ing here in SoCal…I was driving back home and decided to stop by Old Town Irvine. Here you can find a couple of cool older buildings that have been updated. Here is some info from the web:

Old Town Irvine stands today as a testament to the rich agricultural past of what has become one of California’s most heavily urban counties. Founded in 1887 as the distribution and storage center of the 125,000-acre Irvine ranch, Old Town Irvine was to develop over the years a bean and grain storage warehouse (1895) and granary (1947) known as the Irvine Bean and Grain Grower’s Building, a blacksmith’s shop (1916), a hotel (1913), a general store (1911), and an employees’ bungalow (1915). All of these structures have been rehabilitated for commercial uses and their exteriors have been painstakingly maintained.
