|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)
