Postcard: Manhattan Beach Had Lagoons?


It’s been a while since we’ve had an entry into our Postcard series, but good things come to those who wait. This dynamic piece captures a diver in midair over what the postcard calls “Stillwater Lagoon”  in Manhattan Beach. While we know the Blackstone Hotel had a lagoon, and that would certainly fit given the timeline (1923 postmark), we’re not sure if that’s the one shown here. Regardless – we appreciate that this eBay seller put it up. We’ve got another cool one for you tomorrow.

    have told us that during construction of their homes they’ve found these
    underneath the surface.
