Building Orange County, California

After my service to the military, I returned to Southern California and drove a sand and gravel truck, helping to lay the foundation for Los Angeles and Orange County. I poured concrete creating the foundation for overpasses, hotels, and buildings being formed to create the city, town, and countryside. It was my life. I was transforming a city. I hauled lightweight aggregate, drove about ninety-thousand miles a year and created the landscape of southern California.  I have worked on the Library Tower which is the tallest building in LA. Light Rail and the Metro Link. In 1967, I changed positions and drove trucks locally. I retired in 1995, with a 2-million-mile award under my belt.   Order my book Today: Home | James Pool Enterprises (
