ON THE MARGIN

Personally, I am in favor of calling it Cabrillo park because he “saw it first.” How do we know that Cabrillo did not climb to the summit of Date street to view the bay and ocean? Is it not very probable that Cabrillo was the first man to set foot on the golf links, or to contemplate the Sefton deer pasture as a possible town lot to be sold to the future tourist enraptured of the climate and rich enough to enjoy it without building a factory to work up the raw material of the native products?
