Hosted by the Ocean Beach Historical Society and Presented by Eric DuVall

Be with the OB Historical Society July 20th as Eric DuVall explains his forty five year fascination with the sidewalks of Ocean Beach and Point Loma.

This is a path upon which entire streets appear and disappear, and where the passage of time and the physical history of our community are literally written in concrete. No, really! Would anyone have thought that something so ubiquitous and ordinary, something so obviously hard, if not always cold or hot, as common sidewalks, could be even remotely interesting? Or that the very sidewalk beneath your feet might be steeped in mystery and controversy? Well it sure is. (Sort of, a little bit.)

Eric’s occasional Facebook Feature, Sidewalk Sunday, proved – against all odds – to be semi-popular. And the OB Historical Society’s presentation on the 50 th Anniversary of the Ocean Beach Pier showed the world that people will turn out to hear a man talk about concrete.

In this case the presenter is not an expert on the subject, but merely an observer. An observer of something that doesn’t move, something that is the same this morning as it was thirty, fifty, or even one hundred years ago. Or is it?

Please join us for what is guaranteed to be an entertaining and informative evening.
