Contents: From the Historical Society of Long Beach website:
"Founded in 1962 by a coalition of community leaders and activists, the HSLB began collecting the material history of Long Beach, including maps, photographs, advertising, and other documents that chronicle the City. For more than 30 years the organization was staffed entirely by volunteers. During this time, the HSLB published books with historical photographs on a variety of local topics including the Pike and the 1933 earthquake. The organization was housed in several locations including Rancho Los Cerritos, Rancho Los Alamitos, a senior center and people’s homes until moving into its first public gallery space on Pine Avenue in 1994. In 1996 it hired its first Executive Director."
This particular book was first published in 1971 and was reprinted again in 1976. It chronicles Long Beach's history as a seaside resort from the late 19th century up through the latter part of the 20th century with full-page captioned photographs.
