New Long Beach piers, 1958
Supplementary material reads: "Caption material. Gershon's pictures of start of new Long Beach piers. Eight negatives -- one is blank. Girl in mermaid outfit is Karen Duncan, 20, 1528 East 1st Street, Long Beach. Idea, maybe, is that the mermaid forgot to dive and was picked up with a barge-load of rock -- or write your own scenario. Two men are, in all pictures, left to right: Joseph Bishop, president of Long Beach Harbor Commission, and Charles L. Vickers, general manager of Port of Long Beach."
