We discover how San Carlos really got its name; visit a backcountry store that hasn't changed in a century; remember the brickyard tower in Rose Canyon, the great "San Diego Tower" that was never built, and the once-mighty silk industry of North County. Plus, postcards from a century ago; the most unusual public monument in The South Bay and more!
