Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Ports O' Call, an entertainment and shopping complex modeled after a 19th Century New England fishing village, opened in 1963 and experienced steady popularity for many years. As tastes began to change in the late-1980s, some attractions were removed but many restaurants continued to serve customers for another 30 years. Despite lawsuits and public outcry, all of the Ports O' Call structures, except the San Pedro Fish Market, were demolished in 2018 to make way for West Harbor, a new development designed by James Corner Field Operations.
Visitors walk among the businesses at Ports O' Call in San Pedro, September 1968.
