Angel Mural: Filippino Lippi

Little Italy San Diego CA

Historically home to Italian Fishermen and their families, many who came here from San Francisco after the devastating 1906 earthquake there. The area went into a severe decline during the 1970s when the Interstate 5 was constructed destroying 35% of the neighbourhood. It is now a very popular area.
