Historical Views by Emil Lucev
The Hotel Pasedena stood at the beach end of Beach 86 Street for years, until the northeaster of February, 1920 struck the peninsula.
In today’s Historical View, a group of sightseers survey the hotel, which was totally destroyed by the storm’s high winds and battering waves.
The beach is covered (no sand can be seen) with clams and the same group of clam-gathering children that were featured in last week’s Historical View. The children can be seen at the right in the photo.
