young girl examines a piece of seaweed

A young girl examines a piece of seaweed on a La Jolla beach about 1888. The photograph is by F. Elliot Patterson who took many such “scenics” of La Jolla during the latter part of the nineteenth century. The girl in this view may be his daughter Amy. La Jolla has long been regarded as a special place of beauty by many San Diego residents and year-round tourists. Beginning on page 90 Nan Cuthbert offers an unusual look at this coastal community through the impressions of newspaper writers and photographers over a period of some fifty years.
