"Abandoned San Diego"
About the book, by the author...
In a thriving modern city like San Diego, little stays the same for long. Today's skyline would be virtually unrecognizable to a time traveler from the 1905s, but when you explore a little, you find fascinating vestiges of the San Diego of our great grandparents tucked away. 'Abandoned San Diego' is a trip back in time, visiting nineteen sites that are in some level of deterioration, but still offer a glimpse into a different period in San Diego's past. Along the way, we will take a richly illustrated journey to old mines, fading towns, burned out ruins, and pioneer cemeteries, among other fascinating places.
