Photograph of of a view of beachgoers and the under-construction Deauville Club on the beach in Santa Monica, ca.1923. The large building is at right and is mostly complete except for the wall facing the beach. There is scaffolding around one of the two large towers on the corners of the buildings. The beach in front of the club is crowded with bathers playing in the sand and the surf. Further down the beach at center are other beach clubs, including the Santa Monica Athletic Club. In the background, the cliffs of Palisades Park are visible.
