This Rare Footage In The 1950s Shows Southern California Like You’ve Never Seen Before

We recently found this vintage footage of America’s Finest City from 1950 and it’s an absolute treat. Hop inside a shiny convertible and experience the wonder of San Diego in this charming travelogue sponsored by Chevrolet back in the ’50s. The scenic tour will take you to well-known landmarks like the Hotel Del in Coronado, Balboa Park, and the Old Globe Theatre. You’ll be blown away when you see just how much has changed.

What a surprise to come across this old footage of San Diego. It’s stunning to see how this charming city has grown up over the years. If you were dazzled by the travelogue, you may also want to take a look at this vintage footage of SoCal in the 1940s. What rare finds!
