San Diego Groundbreaking of the Downtown Central Library

groundbreaking of the downtown San Diego Central Library

Studio J owner William Morton photographed today’s ceremonies surrounding the San Diego groundbreaking of the downtown Central Library. The site of the new library is directly across the street from the studio, and is visible from our west windows. Plenty of local politicians and VIPs were on hand, a few of which are shown below. Mayor Jerry Sanders led the ceremonies, with VIPs ranging from local city council members to Sen. Christine Kehoe and former Gov. Pete Wilson. Dr. Irwin Jacobs, founder of Qualcomm and a major donor to the library project, spoke to the crowd with his wife Joan. A surprisingly large crowd was on hand, including basketball legend Bill Walton. It’s safe to say that the community was fully behind this San Diego groundbreaking.
