I JUST LOVED ALL THIS OLD PICTURES - and it does show also, that people just have had the same desires way back. Must be within human nature, to seek certain places of Beauty. Isn"t it? Anyhow was a good idea to bring that in on here! Thank you Bernie - for starting it.

Where do these pictures come from? I'd love to see a couple of hundred more of them. Thet really fire up one's sense of nostalgia.

There's a glass shop, between 4th and 3rd, that has the best collection I've ever seen. It's a rock toss away from La Moneda money exchange on 4th but I can't recall the street. [ it's one street south of the river ] I'll find my map and let you know.
Don't bother asking this guy for copies or anything like that. He is very protective of what he has.

There are many on the San Diego Historical Society website.

http://www.sandiegohistory.org

If you're looking for something super-specific, search that site using Google. Example - pictures of Ensenada:

This has been addressed by the gentleman from the Tijuana Historical Society - and FDT.

While I believe the "Rancho Tia Juana" land grant refers to the place by a number of names, the gentleman in Tijuana believes that there is confusion, because the area around San Ysidro was first called Tia Juana or Tia Juana City - with suburbs planned named Tia Juana Junction and Tia Juana Heights.

That area was also known as the Tia Juana River Valley.
