Lurline Pier (1894-1967)

The Lurline Pier was located on Ocean Beach between Balboa and Anza streets. It was sometimes called the "Olympic Club Pier" because an intake pipe for pumping saltwater to the old Lurline Baths and Olympic Club pools downtown, hence the two names. The pier lasted until the 1960s and formed the southern boundary of the stretch of beach that surfers still call "Kelly's Cove".

Lurline Pier protected the intake pipe for the downtown Lurline Baths (Larkin and Bush streets, 1894-1936)
