Frank L. Heath, a renowned California artist of his time whose works won numerous awards, was twenty-nine years old in 1886 when he painted the subtly colored view of Mission Valley reproduced in part on the front cover. The entire canvas, which measures 24 x 44 inches, is from the collections of the San Diego Historical Society and is currently on view at the Serra Museum in Presidio Park.
Mission Valley Mall, remember Judy’s store that welcomed you into malls?
|In 1953 the Sears & Roebuck Department store stood in what is now the Uptown District.
Remember the Halloween Shop, and the smell of warm cashews?
