Description
Caption: "Long Beach," c. 1915, shows a view of a portion of "The Pike," which was an amusement zone along the shoreline in Long Beach, California. It was founded in 1902 by Charles Rivers Drake, a Civil War veteran and early Long Beach developer. The Pike included arcades, gift shops, food stands, a variety of rides, and a grand bath house (the two-story building pictured on the right). After years of disrepair, The Pike was closed in 1979.
