An old postcard circa 1910. This combines a couple of my interests of railroads along with areas where I have lived. I lived in the San Diego area for 2 years. When I revisit the area it seems familiar yet unfamiliar.
The motor car here is a gasoline powered railcar. Quick note that La Jolla is pronounced La Hoya. La Jolla is now the most upscale area in San Diego back then it was probably sparsely populated judging by the size of the motor car. It is a rare vehicle as most rail equipment was steam powered or electric.
