July 21, 2016, the OBHS presented The OB Pier Turns 50!!! Celebrate and Learn the Pier’s History, By Ralph Teyssier at the P.L. United Methodist Church in O.B.
We really appreciated the hard work and construction that went into building the OB Pier after the wonderful program by featured guest Ralph Teyssier, the son of Leonard Teyssier, owner of one of the largest construction companies in San Diego in the mid- 1960s. Leonard’s firm, Teyssier & Teyssier, Inc., built the Ocean Beach Fishing Pier.
Ralph was delighted to share the fascinating aspects of the engineering and construction that went into the building of the Ocean Beach Fishing Pier. Intrigued with structural engineering and construction from an early age, Ralph had the on-site opportunity to watch first hand, the building of the Ocean Beach Fishing Pier.
This special 50th anniversary program was an evening to remember and celebrate our beloved Ocean Beach Pier.
