Photograph of a view of the Santa Monica beach and Bath House between Broadway and Colorado Avenue looking north from the pier, ca.1905. The wide, sandy beach is occupied by countless bathers and their umbrellas at center. At left, the ocean is full of even more people. The large, three-story bath house is in the background at right. It is a rectangular building with rows of square windows on all three levels. Several smaller buildings are near the bath house. The steep cliffs of Palisades Park are visible in the distance at center, and the Santa Monica mountains are beyond the bluffs.
