Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Three men stand on a concrete wall at East Seaside Walk looking at a storm drain that a man on the bottom is pointing to. Behind them is the midway of The Pike amusement park south of Ocean Blvd. in Long Beach. In front of the midway is the first Long Beach Municipal Auditorium, the municipal pier and the Jack Rabbit Racer roller coaster.; The first Long Beach Municipal Auditorium was built in 1905 on the east side of the municipal pier at Seaside and Pine Ave. for a capacity crowd of 6000. A wooden-frame construction with supporting pillars, the upper deck collapsed on May 15, 1913, during the "British Empire Day" celebration. The auditorium was replaced in 1932 by the second Long Beach Municipal Auditorium. Started in 1902, The Pike ran until 1979.
