The Friends of San Diego Architecture have just posted an amazing collection of architectural images donated by the local historian Ned Paynter (1935-2007). Paynter was an avid traveler with a passion for architecture, and his collection of 10,000 images includes 500 photographs of buildings in San Diego. Many of San Diego’s architectural treasures suffered from San Diego’s zeal for rapid commercial development and were demolished years ago–these exist now only in photo archives like this one.

And a big thanks to the Friends of San Diego Architecture!
