He means the "Y", aka the 1/101 interchange. It had a bloody history before being reconfigured sometime in the late sixties/early seventies.

1/101 interchange? in the late 60s or early 70s? I'm blanking on that. I do recall them building the offramp from the 5 down to PCH around then and redoing it a couple of times. They also bi-directionally separated PCH through Dana Point then too. I don't recall anything looking like that pic then.

The old St. Edwards Church would have been off to the right of that pic. I think that was built in the 20s with Doheny family money.

Hi,

I used to have a girl friend near Fallbrook and drove the Hwy/freeway weekly. The section south of San Clemente, on the way to Oceanside, was "Slaughter Alley". The fence between the lanes was the only divider. I would go down in the morning and by night on the way home large sections of the fence would be down from accidents. It is the 5 now and I think it was in the mid 60's, but also was hwy 101, if memory serves.

Lots of fun reading all of this. I came to OC in '57 and lived in Buena Park, Fullerton and Yorba Linda until 2006 when I retired and moved to the High Desert. OC is only an hour away, so I still spend considerable time there..
I worked in El Toro for 10 years so I learned a lot about south county during that time. All of the people, streets, and memories mentioned bring back many memories.
In BP, I lived at Valley View and La Palma, which was literally across the street from Dairy Valley. Valley View wasn't named that when we first moved there. Can't remember what it was called then.
Lots of fun memories here, keep up the good work....

Thank you!

I have a question: Where was the town of Native American town of Niguel in Laguna Niguel? I have searched and searched and am guessing it was near Aliso Creek, probably somewhere near where that lake is today. Does anyone know?
