Laguna Beach Historical Society Program Monday March 16th

The next Laguna Beach Historical Society program will be Monday, March 16th starting at 7:30 p.m. the Laguna Beach City Hall Council Chambers which is at 505 Forest Avenue. The public is invited and there is no charge. Historical Society Board Members Eric Jessen and Gene Felder will present a PowerPoint presentation "View and Discuss Historic Images from the Tom Pulley Postcard Collection".

According to Historical Society Treasurer Gene Felder "We had the great fortune of meeting Tom Pulley when he came to do research at the Murphy-Smith Bungalow. When asked if we could scan his seven postcards of Isaac Frazee's 1921 Peace Pipe Pageant or "Kitshi Manido" the 1921 Peace Pipe, we found out that he had seven hundred postcards of Laguna Beach. He has kept us busy. Come Monday, March 16th and we'll view and discuss some of them including piers, hotels, and businesses."
