Real Time-At Another Time

We now give you a short view of Chula Vista in real time. Real time as of 1922, that is:

“Chula Vista, just beyond National City on the county highway toward Tijuana, is one of the most attractive sections of San Diego County. Near enough in the days of modern rapid transit by train or automobile, or street car, to be called a suburb of the city of San Diego, it is much more than that: for, although many who work in the city have selected Chula Vista as a place of residence, it is the centre of a great citrus growing section, about 3,000 acres being devoted to that end and doing much to give San Diego County high rank among the lemon producing districts of the United States.”

From the 1922 book, City of San Diego and San Diego County: The Birthplace of California, by Clarence Alan McGrew.
