B&P neighbor Kevin F .of San Diego sends along this image he created of an area of downtown San Diego California from the 1870s with a glimpse of what it looks like today.
I know some of the other older looking buildings in the modern photo are from that same era, either they were modified beyond recognition or were built after the old photo was taken. I always heard the modern streetlights were designed to look like the old gas lamps from that era but I sure don’t see any in the old photo. Maybe they were installed later?
A guy walked into a crowded bar, waving his unholstered pistol and yelled,
“I have a 45 caliber Colt 1911 with a seven round magazine plus one in the chamber
and I want to know who’s been sleeping with my wife.”
A voice from the back of the room called out, “You need more ammo.”
