The author, Jeffrey Stanton, began collection photographs of Venice and its amusement piers in 1978. By 1987 his archive had grown to over 600 quality photographs of pier aerials, the resort’s amusement rides, its parades, canals and business district.

The Venice Canal Historic District is a district in the Venice section of Los Angeles, California. The district is noteworthy for its man-made canals built in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney as part of his Venice of America plan. Kinney sought to recreate the appearance and feel of Venice, Italy, in Southern California. The canals are roughly bounded by Eastern Court on the east, Court A on the south, Strongs Drive on the west, and Court E on the north.

If you like Venice, California, you will LOVE this book. From the beginning, before there was a Venice, CA, this book takes you back to 1905 and carries you through to the 50's and more. The book is packed with photographs and the written history of Venice, California by Jeffrey Stanton...a fixture of Venice. Who knows more about the history of this magnificent place? No one and Jeffrey does a fabulous job taking us back in time. Highly recommend. Great book. Well written and I love the photos.

"Venice California - 'Coney Island of the Pacific' ", by Jeffrey Stanton, Los Angeles; Donahue Publ. 1993 3rd Ed., ISBN 0-9619849-2-9, (PB), 232 Pg. (9" x 12") Incl. 1 pg. Contents, plus 9 Chapters: Building... (1907-1912), Coney Isle... (1907-1912), Growth... (1913-1919), Setbacks... (1920-1924), Annexation... (1924-1929), Oil... (1930-1945), Dismantling... (1946-1972), Pac. Ocean Park... (1958-1967), & Ocean Front Walk... (1972).

The book contains over 300 photographs, mostly B/W, but a few in color appeared as postcards or are more recently taken photos by the author. Many are full page-sized archival quality photographs of great historical interest. Additionally, there are a half-dozen schematics of amusement park layouts.

There is extensive well-written & well-researched textual material on the rise and fall of Venice, its heritage & many eccentricities over the past 100 years. Reference material is provided. VB is a city founded by the rich & famous & it remains a place for some with Summer homes, a place for Hollywood's film making & its also known as the Skating Capitol of the World.

For anyone interested in the history of Venice Beach, a former City now a Community about to celebrate its Centennial (Abbot Kinney) on July 4, 2005, "Venice California" is the only bona fide source book to document this playground of the world. Unfortunately, Venice (Beach) is currently in the midst of a power struggle between the City of Los Angeles, its residents & importantly the boardwalk artists & free-speaker West-Siders who provided VB with that distinctive Bohemian atmosphere, -- making it 2nd only to DisneyLand as the most popular tourist attraction in Southern California. At issue is the just imposed monthly lottery system LA City uses to regulate who, when, and why various free speech artists may display, hawk, or demonstrate their wares or skills (music, paintings, tattoos, fortune-telling, religious artifacts) on the very colorful public domain, or West-Side of Venice Beach Boardwalk.

I was fortunate to buy my copy of Stanton's "Venice California" directly from the author just several months ago; the book may be hard to obtain. Do try to get a copy!
