Over the last month photos of the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California have been featured here and today marks a return to the same location for a view this time to the west side of Highway and the Malibu Sport Fishing Pier. The facility is located directly across Route 101 from the Anchor Inn Cafe and the open air Texaco filling station next to it featured earlier. The image was taken by Bob Plunkett of Los Angeles circa 1950.
According to the California State Parks, the Pier was constructed in 1905 for loading boats with agricultural products from “Malibu Rancho” and for receiving shipments. The Pier opened to the public for fishing in 1934.
