Handsome and scarce early 20th-century viewbook for Long Beach, California. The principal images are two striking panoramas, one of the beach and boardwalk on a busy summer day and the other of Long Beach Park being enjoyed by several women at leisure. Other views include portraits of fishermen, bathers, and beachgoers, and images of local architecture and geographical features. We locate only two copies -- at UC Irvine and UC San Diego.
