National Geographic : 1942 Jan
Think of all the fascinating sights and scenes you'll dis cover ... the many recreations and activities, both new and familiar, that you'll enjoy here as nowhere else! Our rugged, beautiful shores, set in a tropic sea, furnish ever-varied pleasure opportunities. Come bathe in sun and sea, and forget all about winter. Fish from a boat or a wave-splashed cliff -- watch surf-riders, and maybe take a board out yourself -- thrill to the beauties of the underwater world! You'll gather desert flowers, almost in the shadow of white-capped peaks. You'll even ski and swim the same day, if the spirit moves you! Mountains, beach or desert -- afoot, in the saddle or rolling down the highways - you'll spend long, golden, unforgettable hours, here in our sun-filled, health-filled, wonderful world! EXTRA DIVIDEND: This is San Diego's historic year! Our 400th Anniversary (celebrated Aug. 29 -- Sept. 9) finds us famed the country over as Defense City No. 1. Dark-painted men of war slip in and out of the harbor, cruising air squadrons cross the sky, anti-aircraft searchlights sweep the night. You'll have a ring-side seat for the greatest drama of our time! Comel ~~llI ill "Mention the Geographic-It identifies you."
