The pier in Newport Beach also was a railroad station in the 1910’s. Here’s some pictures and explanations from Jeff Delaney’s book Newport Beach:
Pier, Newport Beach, c. 1910
Fishermen and strollers were able to enjoy the pier on Sundays, as “nary a wheel turned on the railroad that day.”
Railroad station and long wharf, Newport Beach, c. 1913
These five girls have discovered Dragon Ice Cream, served at the railroad station.
