Hotel del Coronado Pier — Gone But Not Forgotten

I always enjoy the old pics and stories. Wish I could have fished them old piers, even the old Imperial Beach pier with their catches of albacore.

Albacore were frequently mentioned from the old Pine Avenue Pier in Long Beach and were recorded at the Newport Pier and Malibu Pier. Unfortunately, I haven't had access to the San Diego Union Tribune archives so haven't been able to get as much about the older San Diego piers and their catches. I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and subscribe to their archives.
