Book review

Pacific Beach, now a lively suburb of San Diego, began as a quiet college town (today's popular watering-hole was then proud to have no saloons). The community also once hosted one of San Diego's most important industrial sites and its premier sports venue, and all of this was tied together and connected to downtown by the latest in public transit. Hundreds of acres of prime agricultural land produced carloads of fruit, and later flowers, and then much of it was expropriated to house thousands of wartime defense workers. Along the way, generations of 'manly boys' were introduced to military drill and discipline while ‘pretty and popular girls' enjoyed elegant garden parties at a beachfront mansion (and they sometimes met, and even married). Virtually nothing from this earlier era remains to be seen in Pacific Beach today; even the most monumental landmarks have disappeared. But records and accounts buried in the archives for a century or more have now been brought to light, and these long-gone days brought to life, in 'Originally Pacific Beach: Looking Back at the Heritage of a Unique Community' (a few landmarks have survived too, if you know where to look).
