I thought I recalled actual small beach cottages on the sand (Ventura). there were railroad ties that gave access to these homes.

Maybe it was a dream! thank youPat

Must have been a dream!!

I grew up on the beach from 1946 to 1960 and don't remember any cottages during that time. I do remember remenants of a boardwalk which burned down and as I was skim boarding with very low tides some of the pilings would show out of the sand.

beach cottages
by: Judy Biller

Sure there were cottages at the beach in the 1950's. I lived in one of them when I was a toddler. It was just a little way down from Seaward Ave. There used to be a small airport near our backyard, and we played in the dunes a lot! Mr. and Mrs. Lopez rented the house to my folks - remember Mrs. Lopez's yummy burritos at the County Fair and Rexall Drugstore?

Beach cottages
by: Russell

In the 40's and 50's and earlier all of Pierpont was little beach houses/cottages. There was nothing along Harbor Blvd. until you reached the CB Base. There was a community of beach houses/ cottages in the sand dunes between the CB Base and the ocean and it was called Hollywood by the Sea.

All is gone now and replaced by homes, condos, hotels, motels, Ventura Harbor, business and the power plant.

Beach cottages
by: Lori

I remember the beach cottages in the 1950's until the early 1960's when an earthquake hit Japan and caused a massive tidal wave pattern hitting the west coast. We visited a friend afterward who lived in one, and her cottage was flooded knee high with water. Not long after, they were torn down. The story I always heard was that they were copied from cottages in an English village.
