NEW TOWN, 1876. This shot looks southwest from 5th Avenue. Alonzo Horton's 5th Avenue Pier juts into the bay, and the familiar silhouette of Hotel del Coronado is absent. It hasn't been built yet. Signs for the two stores at the center of the photo say "Miss A. M. Tremaine, Fashionable Millinery" and "Fancy Goods and Millinery". At the far left a firm advertises "Paints and Oils" (San Diego Historical Society photo)
