164 years ago: The September 5, 1857 issue of El Clamor Público, the first Spanish-language newspaper in California after the American occupation, reported that Jose Antonio Yorba was elected Justice of the Peace for San Juan, the now-defunct township of Los Angeles that encompassed the San Juan Capistrano mission grounds. Yorba retained this position before moving to the Ranch House at Warner’s where he ran a trading post and handled the paperwork for the ranch operations.

Ohio native Charles Fries (1854-1940) settled in San Diego in 1897 where he specialized in California's desert landscapes "en-plein-air." Known as the "dean of San Diego artists," Fries once lived with his family in the ruins of Mission San Juan Capistrano before building an adobe home and studio in San Diego.

San Diego Gems that Are Past and Gone

“The Bostonia Ballroom was known as the Grand Ole Opry of the Southwest, being a major stop on the country-western music tour circuit. Incredibly, this building is still standing and is an active banquet hall for all occasions. I want to bring the Bostonia back to life, as a member of a vintage living subculture I feel like it is mine and everyone else’s responsibility to save bits of history when and if we can, like the ballroom. It is recognized by the Country Music Hall of Fame. The goal is to save the building and get it recognized as a historical point of interest and be put on the national historical register list so it may be a permanent fixture in the community.” -Garret Wear

STELLAR SHOWS presents a WICKED HAREM / GARRETT WEAR production:
"Recreating the Bostonia Ballroom."

Fans of Western swing, vintage venues and country dancing are going to LOVE this one!

We are re-creating the original Bostonia Ballroom — a hot-spot for western swing music in El Cajon a half-century ago — where some of the greatest names in country & western music came to play.

In the 1940s thru the 50s, the Bostonia was known as the "Grand Ole Opry of the Southwest."
On regular rotation were touring acts such as Bob Wills, Patsy Cline and Ray Price. Celebrities included Hank Williams, Merle Travis and Willie Nelson. Lefty Frizzell, Spade Cooley and Carl Perkins were among many top artists to play the storied venue during the Golden Years of California Country. Hundreds of bands performed nearly every day for decades, with as many as 1,500 patrons.

With that history in mind, we are re-creating the vintage Bostonia vibe - and adding an outdoor festival as well. With three hot bands performing all evening, and a sizable dance floor, the Bostonia Ballroom will be swinging once again. Oct 23, 2021

Take a look at this salutary musical lineup:
Deke Dickerson’s All-Star Western Swing Band:
• The legendary Scotty Broyles on mandolin;
• Dave Stuckey of the Lucky Stars on drums;
• Brent Harding from Social Distortion on bass,
• famed picker Tommy Harkenrider on rhythm guitar;
• and pedal steel sensation Russell Blake - playing Speedy West's original Bigsby instrument.
• Multi-instrumentalists Mitch Polzak & The Royal Deuces bring their original rockabilly, bluegrass and country swing from Sacramento.
• Lil' Sue & The Cow Tippers round out the bill with their swinging h***y tonk dance hall music.

Schedule:
6 pm - Doors open for Bostonia Ballroom seating
7 pm - Lil' Sue & The Cow Tippers
8:30 - Mitch Polzak & The Royal Deuces
10 pm - Deke Dickerson’s All-Star Western Swing Band

"Believe it or not," Ed Fletcher took this photo while seated. Old Timers Picnic!

The first self-timing device allowing a photographer to be included in his/her own images was patented in 1902.

Old Timers' picnics were popular during the first half of the 20th century.

On August 11, 1931, some of San Diego County's most notable 'old timers' gathered for a picnic at Rancho Guajome, granted to Cave Johnson Couts after he married Ysidora Bandini. Pictured seated on the veranda of the historic adobe are (left to right): Cave J. Couts, Jr., Col. Ed Fletcher, George W. Marston, J.E. Boal, M.F. Heller, Julius Wangenheim, and M.T. Gilmore.
