Exploring the History of Coronado Homes
Have you ever wondered what Coronado homes looked like when you were a kid? Or what was on the property before your Coronado home was built? It’s hard to sift through old photographs and even harder to find the photographs.
But now the Coronado Public Library together with the Coronado Historical Association has launched the Coronado PhotoAtlas. This online photo resource displays contemporary and historical photographs of Coronado places, located by their street address. The archive reaches back for 125 years.
Visit the PhotoAtlas. You can take already assembled photo tours and see pictures of the people who used to live in Coronado. Or type in the address of your Coronado home or other place of interest and find photographs and information tailored to your interests. You’ll be amazed at what you will find! Your kids will enjoy looking, too, making it a quiet activity to suggest this summer.
The images in the PhotoAtlas have been assembled from the collections of the Coronado Library, the Coronado Historical Association, and from private citizens who’ve all spent time living, playing and embracing the Coronado lifestyle. If you have quality photographs of Coronado homes, shops or other buildings and would be willing to share them with the PhotoAtlas, you can contact [email protected]
