Anaheim as described in 1939 [1]

Anaheim is the second oldest California town founded as an experiment in communal living. German settlers arrived in 1857. The name is a union of "Ana," from Santa Ana River, with the German word for home. In the City Park, bounded by Lemon, Palm, Cypress and Sycamore Streets, is a Greek theater.
