In Special Collections at the Public Library we come across lots of excellent photographs of early San Diego.  Many of unfamiliar.  How about the “Pipe Hospital” at 306 C Street in 1915?  Or the Grossmont Center Shopping Center when it was just a large excavation? And here’s a nice shot of the submarine S-33 in San Diego harbor.
