Description
Image of a beach crowded with people, small boats, and beach umbrellas just north of the Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, California. The Deauville Club (on the beach with towers) is in front of the bluffs of Palisades Park with a sign for "Yachtsmen," and a sign advertising "Sea Food Grotto, fish dinners, clam chowder and cocktails" is seen on a restaurant situated at the edge of the pier at right.
"Santa Monica, Calif. Bolton #151"--text, on item. Title devised by cataloger. Date approximated by cataloger based on style of swimsuits and sign for "Yachtsmen," possibly referring to the opening of the Santa Monica Yacht Harbor Breakwater in August 1934.
