In the new OB Community Plan Update, a date of “1983” was given to the lifeguard station (which, by the way, needs to be replaced). But OB history buffs knew that was an incorrect date.
Somebody dragged up the date of “1944”, but no, that’s not right either.
The OB Rag has photographic evidence that the lifeguard tower was replaced sometime since the early 1970s – we have a black and white of the old, former building taken in 1972.
So, do you know? If so, share your info and/or documentation with the rest of us.
