A downtown street scene in 1943 dramatizes the fact that wartime San Diego was a great military base. Crowded with throngs of people, both military and civilian, streets were full of marine khaki, and navy blue with white caps along with defense plant workers on busy round the clock schedules. In a still comparatively small town, San Diego’s commercial and entertainment activity remained centered in the downtown area. Wartime San Diego is further explored in a pictorial essay beginning on page 197.
