Oceanside news building repurposed

Oceanside news building repurposed

The old Blade-Tribune newspaper building in Oceanside, built in 1936, is being refurbished to house a newspaper-themed restaurant, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

“A restoration of the building’s front facade uncovered the original sign that reads ‘Blade Tribune and News’ along with other details that had been obscured by stucco since the 1950s,” the article said.

The Blade-Tribune and News later became the Blade-Citizen, then the North County Times, which was eventually purchased by and became part of The San Diego Union-Tribune.
