Hi everyone, Jill sent this photo with article many moons ago. The article is lengthy and it's not close at hand right now, but I think the article was just mostly about the construction of the yacht harbor ...correct me if I'm wrong Jill or you might want to elaborate. This must have been maybe circa 1939 or 1940...??..As you can see, our Susan is smack in the middle..looking very beautiful, of course. Sorry, to be so slow at getting it on the site, Jill.
Happy to see the photo up. The sign is still there in all its glory and at night it is lit up with neon lights. Beyond the sign is the famous Santa Monica pier, where I've spent many weekends.
BTW, there was another photo in the publication I sent (which commemorated the 100th anniversary of the pier), with Susan sitting with her legs draped over a ledge. At least I think so. More of a closeup view. I'll have to find my copy of the pub to see for sure.
The last time I was at the beach I noticed that the photo was featured in a kiosk describing the history of the pier. It was great to see but wish Susan was identified in the photo.
Funnily enough, even tho the sign says "yacht harbor", it never was used for that purpose. So much for truth in advertising.
I checked the publication and the photo I mentioned is on page 22. Do you still have the publication? Hope you can scan this photo because it is more of a closeup shot.
Jill, I just seem to have one page of the publication, that had the group picture, but maybe the other part is here somewhere. I'll keep looking.
I sent you two pages of the publication, with post-it notes flagging the two photos in question. Oh well, hope you can find it. If not, maybe I can part with my one last copy if I can get it back from you after you scan it.
