Downtown San Diego’s elegant mission style railroad station as it looked shortly after its construction in 1915 (it replaced an earlier station built in 1887). The Santa Fe Railroad proposed to raze the building in the early 1970s, but it has since been restored. An article in this issue of the journal traces the history of all of San Diego county’s railroad stations. Courtesy San Diego History Center Title Insurance and Trust Collection.
