Casualties of 1958

Victims of progress in 1958 included the famous old Crosthwaite adobe in Mission Valley, which stood not far to the south of Highway 80. Below, left, a little gem of Victorian “story-book house” architecture, at Union and Grape Streets, was one of the victims of the coast-Jong super highway which cuts through mid-town San Diego. At the right, the stately old Munier home in lower State Street comes down to make way for a parking lot. (Crosthwaite photo from Union Title’s historical collection.)
