Description

Postcard with the caption "Bathing on the Beach near the Wharf, Ventura, Cal." showing the wharf in Ventura. The masts of ships are visible at the end of the wharf. In the foreground, people, including many children, gather and wade in the shallow water. The tide is low, with no waves, and the sky seems to show dawn or dusk. There are two carts with large spoked wheels.
