Santa Monica Pleasure Pier

Santa Monica Pleasure Pier: A Look Back to 1917 from Today” is a side-by-side comparison that juxtaposes the past and present in ways that puts today’s landscape in the greater historical play. A book of a book from the Stephen Raul Anaya Collection, a rare and mostly unseen look at the Santa Monica Pleasure Pier and its surroundings from 1917. Images were pulled from a unique ‘Prospectus Book’, created by its then owner, Mr. Looff (who built the first carousel) hoping to sell shares in his Santa Monica “Pleasure Pier.”

No detail goes unturned. This is a labor of love. It is with great pleasure that we share and celebrate this book with you as this 1917 collection of images serves as a reminder of our own continuity, specifically as it relates to time and place, in this case of one of the most popular and traveled destinations on the West Coast.
