Three views of the Million Dollar Pier
The original Million Dollar Pier, St Petersburg, sometime in the 1940s-1950s. Replaced in the 1970s by a hideous monstrosity. Read its history here. As ugly as the new one is, it does afford a very nice view of the city skyline from the rooftop deck. The heralded St Pete branch of the Columbia Restaurant is looking forlorn lately; and the downstairs, first floor shops open and go out of business in the blink of an eye.
