Description
Image of a boy in a bathing suit getting ready to dive off of the end of North Beach Bath House Pier in Santa Monica, California, with the bath house's Bowling Pavilion and the brick Santa Monica Electric and Power Co. power house (at right) visible on the beach.
Title devised by cataloger; date devised by cataloger based on the history of the Santa Monica Electric Company, which built a power house on the beach in the late 1890s, and the waning of popularity for the North Beach Bath House after the opening of the Abbot Kinney Venice of America resort in 1905.
