If you happen to be researching the history and images of Coronado, you will find many photos dating back to the 1900s. Most of these pictures will show the Hotel Del Coronado, along with a little community lined by tents.  

 

Coronado was founded in 1885 with the intention of creating a resort town.  And in 1900, John D Spreckels (famous amongst Coronado residents), purchased a piece of land south of the Hotel Del.  The intention was to create a small touristic, vacation spot. This area was named Tent City.  


Nowadays, the streets are no longer lined with tents but you can see this fascinating piece of history by visiting the Coronado History Museum.  It’s located on Orange Ave, next to the  [appropriately named] restaurant, Tent City.
