An edhat reader recently sent in the above photo of the Miramar Beach Hotel. Can other edhatters identify what year this was taken?

And look at that fellow airborne off the end of the diving board. There's about to be a tidal wave.

Look how the girls in the foreground have coordinated their legs and posture!

In the "old days" the Miramar had a map for potential guests to pick where they wanted to stay. The map did not include the train tracks, many guests on the boardwalk cabins or rooms or nearby on the other side of the tracks were appalled by the unexpected noise they experienced.

I've been working at the new Miramar hotel project. With the freeway noise and the train tracks it doesn't seem like anyone would get much sleep.

The bathing suits definitely say 1950s. Notice that the men's bathing suits are smaller than the women's. Today men's suits are 4x larger and women's are 25x smaller.

We're planning a "staycation" once the new and improved Miramar opens! The old Miramar was quite dated, and was a just OK place to stay if you are a person who prefers to live in the past (LOL!). We stayed in the Miramar cottages any number of times, and loved it, but the place needed to be modernized...Big Time. I'm sure the new facilities are going to be 1st rate, and I'm hoping that locals will get some type of discount - even if it's 10-15% off their regular rates. Can't wait to order a tall adult beverage and have it delivered to me pronto as I watch the sea with several of my close friends!

1950s, I remember it well as I grew up next door. There were little cottages and a lawn, not shown here, around the pool area. They were replaced with two story buildings in the 60s, same on the boardwalk, little cottages replaced with ugly 2 story "hotel" rooms. Horrid new buildings going up now.

Most definitely the good old days!
