Photograph of the celebration for opening day at the Palm Avenue Pier in Long Beach, 1893. A long wagon, hitched to four horses and full of passengers, stands at center decorated in hay and palm fronds to the left of which several men sit mounted on horses. The pier extends out over the beach and the ocean in the background. Several people stroll its boards. Signs at the entrance to the pier read "Bicycle riders are warned not to ride machines on the side-walks or wharf--or discharge fire-arms [...] PENALTY [...]", "Go to Bolters [...] Lunches [...] Tamales" and "Fresh Fish". A boy stands in front of the wagon-horses petting his dog.
