Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738520829, Paperback)

Pacific Beach, California, was founded in 1887 by land speculators after the establishment of the railroad to San Diego, which resulted in the formation of many ocean-side communities. A land boom ensued, yet was short-lived due to the Great Depression of the 1890s. World War II brought a torrent of people to Pacific Beach workers, sailors, and Marines, as well as their families increasing its population five-fold. After the war, many residents remained, thus ensuring the growth of the community and the number of businesses, schools, and local services. A photographic history, Pacific Beach includes images that illustrate the community's birth, hardships, and prosperity since its incorporation, as well as the people, places, and attractions that today make the area a well-known destination for visitors from around the world. Featuring images of some of Pacific Beach's most historic landmarks, including the Crystal Pier and the Brown Military Academy, as well as local businesses, architecture, and churches, this pictorial tribute celebrates the history of this San Diego suburb from its earliest days.
