Voted the World’s Best Seaside Park

Friends on the Beach & the L.A. Thompson Scenic Railway, 1921

My grandmother Marguerite (Comfort) Williams (far right), her sister Edith (Comfort) Sundean (next to her) and friends on the beach in front of the first coaster, the L.A. Thompson Scenic Railway. The Scenic Railway opened in 1908 and was torn down in 1923 to make way for the current Giant Dipper.
