Pacific Beach grew five-fold during WWII, but there were still plenty of empty lots when Howard Rozelle took this 1946 aerial. Most of the lots have paths worn in them as favorite short cuts. Two trailer parks and the old fire station are visible south of the pier. The Roxy Theater, where the post office stands today, can also be seen at Emerald and Cass.
