Model of the proposed Pacific Coast Yacht Club

Abstract/Description: Image shows the front view of the proposed Pacific Coast Yacht Club. The club's tower is visible in background with buildings, tennis court and other buildings in the foreground. The location for the proposed club was the Margate area. As reported in the Palos Verdes Bulletin (January 1926, p. 1), "The site was selected by Mr. Francis B. Smith of San Francisco, a recognized authority on harbor and marine engineering, known through the country as "Dry-Dock Smith," who made a careful inspection of the entire coast line from Point Dume to Los Angeles Harbor before recommending this location. His verdict was that a breakwater running northward from the point just south of Bluff Cove, would form, with Flat Rock Point on the north, one of the finest and safest pleasure harbors on the coast - with 66 acres of still water now and an eventual enclosed harbor of some 220 acres in extent."
