Old Newport Avenue
On the back of the photo it was typed: "Ocean Beach....1943. In the 1880's lots sold in Ocean Beach for $60 or $20 down, with a year to pay, no interest. Looking West on Newport. From the historical collection of Title Insurance Company. Union Title Office. 220 A Street, San Diego 12. California. Belmont 9-6081." Incidentally, the Title Insurance Company had quite a photo collection that was given to the San Diego Historical Society in 1979. Below is a photo of Newport Avenue today at about the same spot - a lot has changed including the trees!
So, yay! Why and how are we still doing this!? Because it is fun to see and learn more about our city, because we have great visitors like you, and we get to be creative and hopefully entertaining. Thank you to all of our awesome visitors and special thanks to Alexandra, Expat, and Gayle for their contributions! This city has so much to offer, we aren't done with it yet and are looking forward to another year!
