“The tracks we leave behind”
Local artist Betsy Schulz created ceramic mosaics on ten columns at the Sapphire Tower at Kettner and A Street, adjacent to the trolley tracks. The mosaics represent the history of San Diego County from pre-colonial times to the present. The murals are composed entirely of hand made ceramic tiles that must number in the tens of thousands. A most impressive display and reminder of our past.
