Bradford House Placentia - Tesoro

Since I bought my kombi I have tried to find out what was the history. I knew from the previous owner that the bus was used to collect crates of oranges in Orange county California. The TESORO BRAND writing at the back gave me a big clue and thanks to google, I found out some interesting information.
It looks like that TESORO was a company founded by Mr Bradford in 1902. TESORO were growing citrus in the aera.

The original logo of the orange crates shows the town of Placentia.

This one shows the Bradford house.

Being so close to Placentia a visit was necessary.

The plaque on the park relates to TESORO Rancho just like the label above...

That's me....

And me again with the bus....
