Description
During this period, Jews were not welcome in Santa Monica, so the family would take the street car out from L.A. to Venice, sometimes renting vacation bungalows during the week and returning to the city for the Sabbath and weekends. Ocean Park was sometimes (and derogatorily) referred to as "Sheeny Beach" because of the many Jews.
Rebecca and Isaac Rubenstein with their children Frances and Harold, taken on Venice Beach.
