Description
The Abbot Kinney (Venice) pier in about 1907 included the Pavilion, the Cabrillo Ship Cafe, and the Auditorium. The ship cafe was built in 1905 as a hotel and restaurant, taking the form of a Spanish galleon, permanently moored in place. The ship cafe was a very popular nightspot prior to the Depression. The pier was a part of Abbot Kinney's design for Venice in America, which included Venetian style buildings, canals, and gondolas. It opened on July 4, 1905. This postcard is an unusual fold-out design. "Side 1" is the unfolded view, while "Side 2" shows what the postcard looks like when folded. It reads: "Souvenir Mailing Card"
