A tiptoe through historic photos

More Info on This Book: Mission Beach

“Mission Beach,” the latest picture book on a San Diego neighborhood from Arcadia Publishing, takes in J.M. Asher Jr.'s women-and-children-only swimming pool from 1914, John D. Spreckels' 1926 Mission Beach Amusement Center (today's Belmont Park), surfers, lifeguards, Over-the-Line tournaments and a spectacular storm in 1939 that crashed over the sea wall and flooded the community.

Written by longtime residents Terry Curren and Phil Prather, the 128-page paperback takes in the development of Mission Bay Park, the redevelopment of Belmont Park (including a photo of the Wavehouse) and shots of bathing beauties and musclemen.

“Most of today's Mission Beach residents and millions of
annual visitors will learn that it was not always a community of high-priced condominiums, traffic and crowds, but was once a neighborhood much like any small town in America,” the authors said in an interview distributed by the publisher.

“Images of America: Mission Beach” ($19.99) was released this month and is being distributed to local bookstores. Information on other local titles is available at arcadiapublishing.com
