WWII digs in Bolsa Chica Mesa.
Ammunition Bunkers & Underground Tunnels. This photo is from 1954.

It shows a Model T truck driving over the Bolsa Chica bridge/dam up to the gun
A car pulling up to the curb in front of the gun club.
A car coming over the bridge, showing the lagoon and PCH in the background.
The Gun Club property as it sits today. Not much left. A cement pad and a few
trees is all that's left.
It's fenced off and all the debris were disked under. I could not find any
pieces of the once beautiful mosaic tiles.
When I was a small kid ( early 60s), I remember coming down here with Pop,
but all I remember was all the broken glass.
Pop said he used to duck hunt where Huntington Harbour is now.
