Cypress Street Barrio

Preserving Neighborhood History

The Shades of Orange Photo Collection broadens the representation of Orange area communities in the library's local history photography collection. The Cypress Street Barrio was a dynamic neighborhood for almost a century, and former and current residents helped preserve the neighborhood's history by bringing family albums and personal photograph collections to the library for duplication and incorporation into the collection.
