‘50s in “North” La Mesa. El Cajon Blvd.
meets Route 80 in La Mesa with the La Mesa
Industrial Park just being graded.
Fletcher Parkway is there going off to the
right with lots of open areas around it
(including the future Grossmont Center).
Lake Murray Blvd. is happily winding its
way around the reservoir and off to
ultimately meet up with Fletcher Parkway.
What was special event that day (in El
Cajon?) causing all the East bound traffic
from Route 80 to be backed up and waiting
to go through the cloverleaf and then join
all the cars going East bound El Cajon
Blvd? Lots of stray buildings in the open
area East of Baltimore Drive. I wonder
what they were and if they are still there
