Ostrich Heights

Hey, Matt:

Where I live in University Heights there are signs everywhere on sidewalks, monuments, and such that say "University Heights" with an ostrich below. What's the deal with the ostrich?

Hike on over to the intersection of Park and Adams, face north, and imagine this scene. San Diego's most popular park ca. 1900, Mission Cliff Park; the nearby city trolley barn; and, next door, Harvey Bentley's Ostrich Farm (ladies' hat plumes, our specialty). Now imagine adventurous San Diegans taking the trolley to the park; oohing and aahing at the view over the valley; then rounding out the day with a ride on one of Harvey's cranky birds.
