Mission Valley: Then And Now

Here are two images of Mission Valley, located here in San Diego, as viewed from almost the same vantage point. The image on the left is a photo, taken in 1885, from an exhibit in the tower of the Junípero Serra Museum in Presidio Park. The image on the right is a photo I took yesterday looking out of a window from that same museum tower. The most significant and striking difference for me is that now, thanks to Walt Disney, the world is in color. M&Ms and rainbows must have been a lot more boring back then.





Wonderful World of Color
