Photograph of the beach in Santa Monica in front of the Deauville Beach Club, 1920. The wide sandy beach is at center and is crowded with bathers and their umbrellas. A pair of bicycles is leaning against a post at center. The ocean is at left and is also full of people. The beach is bordered at right by several large buildings, including the Deauville club in the foreground and the Santa Monica Athletic Club further in the distance. Behind the buildings, the steep rocky bluffs of Palisades Park are visible.
