Two Views of the Front Entrance Pacific Ocean Park

For a break today we are going to drive north and west to Santa Monica California, more specifically to Dogtown before it was Dogtown to the pierside theme park Pacific Ocean Park. These views were taken by a group of traveling nurses on a graduation trip in 1960. Great view of the modern sculpture of King Neptune in the waves and of the main entrance icon arch structure. The first image almost has a Coney Island feel with the building in the background. This is a definite great lost park with just bits and pieces remaining. Even the pier structure it once stood upon is now gone. but it did compete against Disneyland for several years.

How about a photo of that Neptune's Kingdon sign...?
