San Diego to Ensenada circa 1930

In the 1930’s the Auto Club of California issued a strip map of the route from San Diego to Ensenada.


I bought a copy of the little map on eBay and am going to use it in the Fronteras Cambientas exhibit at the CECUT Museum in Tijuana that opens on February 24, 2012.  The opening reception is on March 2, 2012. 

Fronteras Cambientas is Changing Boundaries in Spanish


There are lots of very interesting thing to see on the map.  One of them is that, based on the size of the city names and confirmed by my research, in 1930 Ensenada was larger than Tijuana.

    Thanks so much for this. I’m a blogger out of San Giacomo In Valle Aurina, Italia and what I just read here on swcamborne.com could not be written any better. Reading through this article kinda reminds me of my college roommate, Dean. He persistently kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send these ideas to him. I’m certain he will have a good time reading this.
    I appreciate you for revealing this.
