Throwback Thursday: Long Beach Summer Day

Throwback Thursday: Long Beach Summer Day

Summertime is just around the corner and Long Beach will soon be flooded with beachgoers.

Here's a look at a crowded part of Long Beach from 1923 at the height of its golden age.

Around this time, Prohibition was in full swing and Long Beach was a hub for bootleggers. 1923 was the year of the famed raid of the Nassau Hotel that resulted in the arrest of three bootleggers.
