If you are interested in learning more about the history of Del Mar consider taking a moment to “look back.” Del Mar Television Foundation’s “Look Back” short series gives viewers interesting glimpses into Del Mar’s history. For instance, did you know the original train station was built at the turn of the century in a different location? It was then moved to its current location when the hotel was built.
Did you know that east of the Fairgrounds was Del Mar’s Airport, which originally served as a landing site for blimps? How about the Powerhouse, did you know it was once a nightclub that featured Jazz and Dixieland music?

Well these and more interesting facts can be learned by watching this series.
Produced by Del Mar Television Foundation veteran producers such as Charlie Baumgart, Bill Hoffman, and Joe Welsh to name a few. The videos are short and to the point. They may give you insight into how the community has developed from those early years when streets were still unpaved and the pace of daily life was much slower.

The shows can be viewed at your leisure on our online Channels, just click on The “Watch Us” icon on our website at www.delmartv.com or check out our TV schedule by clicking the schedule tab.
