This post card of Orange was taken in 1959.  You can see that the hanger and a small building has been built and there's the beginning of construction work on the rest of the site (just above the loop and below the aircraft.  The photo was taken from a Cessna, probably the DZ's 182, and theres another Cessna and one Norseman on the ground.  In the upper portion of the photo you can see that the landing area is still rather crude and the Para-Bowl is still 3 years away.
