Pirate Party Poster History

Posted: 05/20/2013 by goodie in HQ

I have had several people ask about the original picture depicted on Pirate Party Poster. The picture comes from the cover of “Images of Newport Beach” by Pamela Lee Gray. The book contains lots of historical pictures from the Newport Beach area. During the early 1900’s Newport and Balboa held a variety of events to attract visitors to the area. One of those events was a Pirate Day where beach goers dressed up in their best Pirate outfits. The old man on the bottom left of the picture is famed Newport Beach resident Joe Beek. So in keeping with Newport/Balboa tradition please join us this Sunday at HQ for our very own Memorial Day Pirate Party!
