Description
Photograph caption dated April 18, 1963 reads, "Three Malibu apartment houses were in danger of collapsing when tides washed away support for pilings but efforts are under way to save them. The two-story buildings at 22802 and 22804 Pacific Coast Highway, above, were evacuated Wednesday when the surf threatened to undermine the pilings. Some 100 tons of rock were packed in front of the pillars yesterday in an effort to shore them up against the battering surf and prevent sand erosion. More rock will be placed under the structures to prevent further erosion. Alexander Bond, a county engineer, said the surf has removed large amounts of sand along the beach in the past few days, exposing pilings."
