1. More photographs taken at night
2. Photo of the Old Arcade and plaque on new fountain from the Pike as it is today.


Walking down the main street of the Pike with arcades, shooting galleries, cotton candy, hot dogs, cafes, and a Ripleys Believe It or Not type side show and other exhibits.

Main Street was called " The Walk of a Thousand Lights"
(Bernard Frydman, aka Frenchy - one of the Pike police officers)


Note in this 1938 photo that the water has been pushed back from the bath house (the building center right with the white pillars) with a new Cyclone Racer roller coaster and other new amusement buildings having been added. Long Beach and Los Angeles harbors are in the background.


Anyone who visited The Pike will remember the Laughing Lady.

Kelly Adams found these photos in their family photo album of their grandparents taken in the ‘40s and 50’s on Main Street at The Pike.

Our family has a photo taken in the summer of 1935 of my aunt, Wilma Griffin, sitting on the "moon" at the Pike amusement center.  I don't know where the "moon" was located on the grounds.  My aunt was 17 at the time. My aunt and her parents (my grandparents) and her 2 brothers (one was my dad) were on a vacation trip from Burlington, Kansas to California. My grandmother wrote on the back of the photo: "Wilma Griffin on Pike at Long Beach."
