I bought a book on the history of Newport Beach from Newport Beach Public Library’s bookstore, and have enjoyed browsing through the snapshots and history inside.
The picture to the left shows an aerial view of the Newport Harbor area taken in 1944. It’s somewhat difficult to see, but the area is barely developed–especially in contrast to the area now. There are certainly some vacation homes visible here, but nothing like it is currently. This area is certainly a popular place to live and vacation, as evidenced by the many homes built in these areas.
The picture shows the areas of Newport Harbor, Balboa, Balboa Island, Corona del Mar, Lido Isle, and PCH, and is from the book Newport Beach by Jeff Delaney.
