The Corona del Mar Pier

Paul Wormser - Tuesday, February 19, 2019

Sometimes it is difficult to recognize the location in an old photograph because the landscape has changed so radically.  This photograph is a prime example.  It was taken in 1910, at a point just north of China Cove and the William G. Kerckhoff Marine Laboratory in Newport Harbor, looking toward Irvine Terrace.  Today the shoreline and hillside are crowded with houses, making it difficult to see any landmarks visible in the 1910 photograph.

The pier - now long gone - was Corona del Mar's lifeline to the outside world.  When George Hart bought 706 acres of Corona del Mar from the Irvine Company for $106,000 in 1904, the contract required Hart to construct a pier in Newport Harbor.  One might wonder why the Irvine Company would be concerned with a pier.  The answer was probably that the best land route to Corona del Mar was through the Irvine Ranch and presumably the company did not want residents and perspective buyers crossing their land.  So, visitors and residents of Corona del Mar had to take a ferry, Flora, from the Balboa Pavilion to the Corona del Mar Wharf. This would be the case for nearly two decades, until Coast Highway open through Corona del Mar.

Hello. I have checked your slgardens.org and i see you've got some duplicate content

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to
get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance.
I must say you've done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me
on Opera. Outstanding Blog!

I was just looking for this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don't rank this type of informative websites in top of the list. Generally the top websites are full of garbage.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting
my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?

I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers http://Hatchsandwich.com/

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be on the net
the easiest thing to take into account of.
I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while folks consider concerns that they plainly don't recognize about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the
whole thing without having side-effects , people could
take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.
Thank you
