Over the course of our city and county's history, many historic buildings, both commercial and residential, and cultural landscapes have been lost. The following historic images are paired with current day photos of the same view. This is the San Diego that has been irretrievably lost. These lost San Diego treasures tell a clear story of why our advocacy is so essential and why SOHO strives to protect and preserve what is still in existence for all of San Diego's citizenry, visitors, and for the generations to come.
