Gregg and Perkins NEW
by: Anonymous

Gregg and Perkins constructed the Harbor Village but that area at the end of Pierpont Blvd, where the harbor entrance is now and the park used to be the town dump. But when I grew up on the beach, it was called the dump but not like today. Garbage Pail was picked up by Pig ranchers, everything else was burned in a 55 gallon drums called incenterators and broken stuff went to the dump and catagorized like, bicycles, washing machines, refrigerators, wood and whatever else could be used for something else or scraped for parts. The town was small. I grew up on the beach and I can remember when there were only about 30-40 houses on Pierpont. Coca Cola had a plant on the corner of Mail street and Seward Ave. Also a lemon plant at the top of Seward Ave.
