maybe we can date it from the cars, anyone?
The most modern of the cars look to be approximately 1938 vintage.
... and the Surf Carnival. I seem to remember someone mentioning those concrete piers were demolished after WW2 ... Guessing 1940s.
Good observations guys ! Thank you, the cars sure have style
