There’s a growing interest in our neighborhood in historic photographs of our little corner of the world. Check out these aerial shots of Mission Bay and surrounding areas – taken before it was dredged, while it was being dredged, and then later.
Imagine what the bay – then a lagoon – would have looked like before the Spanish arrived. The Spanish called it Baia Falsa – as it looked like a bay but was very shallow. In the Fifties, the City decided to dredge it and build it up as a giant waterpark.
Viewing these images gives you knowledge and a historical background to this area. Knowledge is power.
