  1. Am a 3rd-generation native San Diegan. Have a wonderful photo of my Mom in front of an Ocean Beach sandstone (Sunset Cliffs) carving made by my Dad in 1937. They were sweethearts then, married in 1939. Input from anyone?

  2. James,
    Would like to see the picture.
    I’ve never heard of any carvings in the cliffs from back in the day. What was the subject matter of the carving? Was your Dad an artist ?
    Would also like to know more about your family history here
    Did they live in the OB area ?
    Please tell us more.
