Newport Beach: The Pavilion at Sunrise c. 1910


Built in 1906 primarily as a recreation center for beachgoers and commercial fishermen visiting Newport Beach, the Pavilion is one of the oldest wooden buildings on the West Coast to survive to the present day. Little altered since its construction, the historic Victorian style edifice is shown in this view at a time when there was hardly another structure in sight. Saddleback Mountain is seen in the distance to the left as several vessels lie at anchor in the channel.
