  • any pictures of old victorian piers?

    I'm working on a project right now and it's about a new thing for paradise pier. But if anyone could send me pictures of victorian architecture and pier stuff. It would help me out SO much if I got a few pictures to copy and paste into it or just use it as inspiration... anything will help

        You could always do a Google image search for "victorian piers," or "victorian style architecture," or something like that.

            This was Saltair, it was on the south shore of the Great Salt Lake. Built in 1893 the first one (first and third pics) burned down in 1925. it was rebuilt in the same year (second pic) but was abandoned in the late 50's and finally burned down in 1970. It was again re-built in 1981 only to be flooded for most of the 80's, it was then re-opened again in 1993 and has stayed in operation as a concert venue since.

                The Balboa pavilion is still there and only 20 to 25 minutes away from Disneyland so if you want to see it in person it wouldn't be that difficult. It is not a pier exactly but it is located near the boardwalk on the Balboa Peninsula. It is also near the Balboa Pier and Newport Piers which do date to the early 1900s. Surprisingly neither of these piers are not really that ornate. If you are hungry the original Ruby's Diner is at the end of the Balboa pier.

                    It still looks a heck of alot better than Paradise Pier (not including Midway mania)

                      Midway Mania does mimic some of these buildings. Where did they get the idea of cheap stucco and vinyl signs in the first place?

                          I already tried that, all I got was a bunch of pictures of victorian style houses. plus I've seen some pictures on MC and figured that there would be some people with pictures like these already in their photobucket albums or flikr(sp)- thanks for the suggestion though
