shown in this 1967 photograph was eventually destroyed. The building on the pier was moved to Rudee Inlet and is now part of a restaurant. Over the years several Virginia Beach locals have told us stories about how the pier met it's demise.
Anyone interested in Old Virginia Beach photos would find a visit to our studio quite enjoyable. Since 1993 I have been acquiring old photographs of both Norfolk and Virginia Beach. Special emphasis of my collection is the development of popular areas such as Rudee Inlet, Lynnhaven Inlet, the Oceanfront and of course Norfolk's waterfront area.
The last aerial photo shown is looking north along Atlantic Avenue, just before the new bridge opened in 1967. This photo when paired with one of the above images of the pier, makes an impressive presentation.
In addition to the aerial photographs, there street scenes featuring the oceanfront area and downtown Norfolk's hot spots. The street scenes and waterfront photos begin in the 1900's.
