Santa Monica Pleasure Pier: A Look Back to 1917 from Today
This book and exhibit that ran at the Santa Monica History Museum 11/19 to 2/20, is a study of Charles I. D. Looff’s ‘1917 Prospectus Book’ and his Santa Monica Pleasure Pier.

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 rare ‘Prospectus Book’, created by its then owner, Mr. Looff (who built the first carousel) hoping to sell shares in his Santa Monica “Pleasure Pier.”
