Come July or thereabouts, I should have a new San Diego history title on the book shelves. Tentatively titled, San Diego Yesterday (same as the blog name) this will be another collection of articles from the Union-Tribune column I wrote from 2008 to 2011. The History Press from Charleston, South Carolina is the publisher. There are 38 chapters; here’s a brief sampling of the contents:
