  3. Id really like to look at the archive and I was hoping I could purchase or make a donation. I’ve lived here in OB for 15 years. I would love to find some. Pictures for my new condo here in OB.

  4. I am writing a little piece on what it was like growing up in Ocean Beach during the 80’s. I was trying to find photos of some of the storefronts from that era to jog my memory, particularly of Buford’s…interior photos of Buford’s would make me very happy indeed. There is almost nothing on the web. Do you have anything like this in your archives?

    Hi Gang. I contributed a couple short articles to you guys back in the day, and I’m curious to know how I could browse the back issues of the newsletters. I’ve been a member for years, but I’m actually interested in reading from the very first issues. It’s kind of like what I’ve done for my canoe club here on Maui for almost 40 years now I’m kind of the historian by dint of just being on hand for all that time. But I’m O.B. at heart, graduated PLHS ’67 so I recognize some of the family names on the BoD. I’ve got lots of amusing tales that began before they built the Pier. Maybe I’ll see some of the folks who enjoy the newsletter as I do.
    A Hui Ho (’til next we meet)
