Windows to the Past: Fun at the Pier

Four teenage girls enjoy the midway games on the Newport Beach Pier during the spring of 1954. The photo was taken by a photographer from the Los Angeles Examiner newspaper.

I always welcome images of old Orange County. Thanks.

I'm not aware of any midway games on the pier. I'd guess this is actually on the other side of the Balboa Peninsula from the pier, at the recently-defunct Fun Zone.

Those squirt guns look like the sort of prize you might have won for playing ski-ball or something.
