The Santa Monica Pier is 102 years old.

And a new exhibit at the Santa Monica History Museum is celebrating that … with an exhibition of more than 50 photographs, maps, letters and other pier stuff.

The Santa Monica Daily Press reports the centerpiece is a document that was sent to investors back in 1917 by Charles Looff …. the architect behind the Santa Monica Pier.

The Looff prospectus is a scrapbook featuring photos of the pier’s attractions, maps of the transportation to the pier, bank statements, diagrams of attraction placements and inventories of the pier’s amenities.

Photos from the original 1917 prospectus have been blown up and placed around the museum … overlaid with present-day photographs from the same viewpoint,

Curators used ladders, drones a tripod balanced on the top of a truck to get those photos..

The exhibit is called the “Santa Monica Pleasure Pier: A Look Back to 1917 from Today,”

It’s at the Santa Monica History Museum … a treasure trove of local information …

It’s at the corner of Sixth Street and Santa Monica Boulevard.

Other parts of Malibu got much less … down to an inch and a third.

More rain is on tap.

An atmospheric river is coming ashore up north … near San Francisco it is raining like crazy.

Mountains near Santa Cruz have had 10 inches of rain from this latest storm alone.

The next storm is slowing down … bu ti looks like we’ll get about an inch of rain starting Wednesday morning.

And yet another storm may hit Saturday.
