October 20, 2022, The Ocean Beach Historical Society previewed the The Beach News Archives! at Water’s Edge Faith Community, and celebrated the 100th birthday of The Beach News, OB’s great little community newspaper. The Beach News started out as a four-page weekly and is THE primary source chronicling the development of the Ocean Beach Community. The Beach News also carried Mission Beach and Pacific Beach news in the early days. It was later known as The Ocean Beach News and eventually morphed into The Peninsula News in the 1950s. Ocean Beach Historical Society is lucky enough to have 13 mostly complete volumes of The Beach News (Link above) from the early ‘20s through the end of World War II. This program by Eric DuVall was a fun and nostalgic look at some of the great features, funny old ads and shameless boosterism that characterized the early content of The Beach News. Go back into time and see what O.B was like in the 20s, 30s, and 40s.
