Aerial view of Solana Beach taken in 1928, a small beach community in North San Diego County. The George H. Jones family were the first settlers, arriving in 1886. Until 1923, the main area known as Solana Beach had been called Lockwood Mesa. In 1922 Colonel Ed Fletcher, an early community leader and developer, purchased 140 acres from farmer George H. Jones to develop the town of Solana Beach, with the help of his brother-in-law Eugene Batchelder. Today, over 12,000 residents call this small beach community their home. (Photo by Erickson)
