The Lakeside Historical Society celebrated the centennial of the land speed record set by Barney Oldfield around Lindo lake. Historical societies from around San Diego were there to join in the festivities which featured racing cars from the turn of the century.The woman dressed in outfits of that time period and the cars did “victory” laps throughout the day. Many were surprised the see “Ocean Beach” in Lakeside… so we took some good natured ribbing. Most people had a story or two to tell about their stay or visit in OB. OBHS Board Members Kathy & Ray Blavatt were manning the booth with Pat & Susan James paying a visit. “It was nice to meet the other historical societies.” National City woman were dress in their finery with elaborate hats, something to see. Thank you to the Lakeside Historical Society members for all the hard work to pull this event off, especially since the recent fires – so Ocean Beach tips its hat to Lakeside.
