SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

This Ole Hanson home, located at 205 S. Calle Seville, was built in 1927 and purchased by Domenic and Juli Isola in 1993. “This photo came with the home and we cherish it by displaying it as it was left to us,” the family said. “Photo looks to be around the same time it was built. What a view from the tower room the home must have had back then!” Photo: Courtesy of Domenic and Juli Isola

The beach hut at Trestles is a locally known vestige of surfers made of nearby materials. “I took the pictures about the year 2000 or 2001 and they showcase both the thatches roof hut and also the local surfer art that was carved/painted on the structure,” said Robert Clarke, who submitted the photo. “I don’t know how locally famous the hut actually was but my friends and I used to enjoy bonfires there for a couple years.” Photo: Courtesy of Robert Clarke
