Today’s postcard image seen in its entirety in the lead image was taken by Los Angeles photographer Bob Plunkett circa 1950. Just to the right of this photo is the location of the Malibu Sport Fishing Pier, a southern California icon and Surf Rider Beach, both located on California State Route 101.
The two sectional enlargements below show this scene in detail that includes an open-air Texaco filling station with a lift for oil changes and lubrication services. The many vehicles visible in the parking lots and on Route 101 give us an excellent view of pre and post-war vehicles that tourists and local travelers were driving in this period.
