Amazing footage of San Diego back in 1970


Life is really simple, but we make it difficult

When my wife's family moved to Poway, it was the main street and horse pastures.
When I moved there in the early 80's it was open fields and houses...

Now it is a little city.

They still have the hamburger factory, so that is a bonus...

Holy crap, didn't realize this was on here til now. Thanks much for posting Ray. Brings back very fond memories. I was in my 3rd year at UCSD. Drove this city all over the place and many of those are places I used to frequent. Harbor Dr. I just glanced at but I have to go thru em all and pick out stuff. What a change over the years. I miss the old days badly. Really nostalgic stuff. That's our city, America's Finest. A lot of what I had during that time, family, is gone so it's bittersweet looking at it all knowing they were all alive then. We are priviliged to have had SD as a home. Can't really think of anywhere I'd rather have grown up and had roots with family. I guess all that long history and those memories are why I'm so passionate and disgusted my team is now gone to LA. I just cannot wrap my head around that. When I left for Detroit for 4 years in 1972 I tried to catch any games I could on an old black and white TV I reclaimed from a dumpster behind my apt. I didn't see many but when I got one thru all the interfenence on that crappy tv I was thrilled. And those were the Svare years IIRC....they really sucked the big one LOL. It was a prelude to the Prothro/Don Coryell era though, little did I realize in Detroit we'd end up with an amazing team under Coryell and had that to look forward to when I got back to CA.
