#1018 Manhattan Beach Pier
Designed by City Engineer A.L. Harris, this pier was constructed by the City of Manhattan Beach during the years 1917-1920. The roundhouse building was added a year later. Harris' innovative design featured a rounded end to the pier, which helped it withstand the pounding of the Pacific. Although the roundhouse was reconstructed in 1992, the pier itself survives as southern California's oldest remaining example of early reinforced concrete pier construction.
