Moore's birdseye of a sparsely-populated Coronado Beach [google map]

The map appears to have been commissioned by what I'm guessing was a real-estate development company -- the Coronado Beach Company -- I'm generally distrustful of those sorts of things, but if you were to look at how much that land goes for now... I'd have to grudgingly accept that yeah, they were on to something.
