Newport Beach (CA) (Images of America) by Pamela Lee Gray

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.
