The Balboa Village Market was torn down yesterday to make room for a parking lot. Set in the middle of one of my favorite places in Orange County--The Balboa Peninsula --it was a beautiful old building with these great murals on the side and back.
So sad. It reminds me of when they leveled The Golden Bear back in 1986. I hate to see these pieces of our history go away for parking lots, chain restaurants and condos. It's just so shortsighted. I'm glad at least have these photos.
