Cobb urbanization and trucks broke that bond. E. Walnut at Pomona Packing houses were built along the rail Eadington Fruit Company Santa Fe near Spadra (now Harbor) line to prepare the crops (oranges, Fullerton Mutual Orange Assn. lemons, walnuts and vegetables) for W. Walnut shipment to all parts of the nation and Fullerton Packing Company Canada. The following is a list of W. Walnut packing houses found in the 1927 Fullerton-Placentia Walnut Assn. directory and I have tried to indicate the W. Santa Fe railroad serving the facility. If anyone Orange County Produce Growers Assn. has correction to this list, please let me E. Walnut know about them. Orangethorpe Citrus Assn. 144 W. Walnut Cutler-Lobingier Packing Co. Anaheim S.
