Advertisements around Lane Field for Kelley Laundry, Sunbeam Bread, Kettner Radio, and San Diego Journal. Lane Field was a downtown waterfront ballpark, built at the northeast corner of Broadway and Harbor Drive in 1925, named after Bill Lane. It was the home of the Pacific Coast League's San Diego Padres from 1936 to 1957. The Padres, formerly known as the Hollywood Stars, were owned by Bill Lane, who had made his fortune in gold mining. The Padres moved to Mission Valley in 1958 and Lane Field became a parking lot. (Photo by Golowka)
