Lincoln Park & Public Library Postcardfrom back of card "Lincoln Park, Long Beach, California. Fronting on Ocean Boulevard at Pacific Avenue, this public park contains Public Library; rogue courts, chess and checkers facilities, and open-air band concert building. At its west edge is the famous Long Beach Farmers' Market."
The library was originally funded by Carnegie and built in 1907. The WPA rehabilitated the library after damage from the March, 1933 earthquake. The building pictured here was unfortunately destroyed by a fire in 1972. The new library was built across the street at the address listed above.
