Beschreibung

This collection of historical images documents the islands and villages of Newport, Balboa, and Corona del Mar. The seaside resorts had been a place for dory fishing, bustling wharf traffic with railroad transportation, and visitors who arrived in Pacific Electric Cars. The seaside fun-land was transformed into shipyards, a launch for sport-fishing, and a place of rest and relaxation for military personnel in World War II. These black and white images feature such events as Bal Week, a tradition since the 1930s; the first surfing contest on the Mainland in 1928; melodies and dance steps of the Rendezvous Ballroom and the Balboa Pavilion; and decades of yachting and sailing. This volume will bring back memories to local residents, as well as introduce the heritage of Newport to a new generation.
