Downtown San Diego Circa 1953

(Posted on Greg May's Vintage San Diego Facebook page)
This photo looks northeast to the sprawling pink complex that once was the Navy Hospital.  Just below it you can make out the ivy-covered walls of the Old Gray Castle -- San Diego High.  Adjacent to the high school, to the right, is Russ Auditorium.  The Hotel Churchill, for your reference, is located at 827 C Street.
