The exhibition “Santa Monica Pleasure Pier: A Look Back to 1917 from Today”, a visual exploration by Michael Murphy and Jens Lucking, provides a unique opportunity to view the original photographs, plans, and drawings that Charles Looff created to solicit investment and other support for his popular new pier. Rare images and ephemera from the Stephen Raul Anaya Collection, show how Looff, more than a century ago, transformed Santa Monica’s now world-famous pier from municipal utility into the “Pleasure Pier,” the earliest iteration of today’s world-renonwned pier.
