1933: Christmas

The town gathered on the bay shore on Christmas morning for a meal. In this picture, you can see the Wrigley Mansion atop the hill and E.R. Pollok as city manager is in the foreground at right in his white hat and suit.

1935: Hillbillie Quartet

This photo was taken in 1935 inside the Casino. Not sure if part of a talent contest or not, but in the front row is the Hillbillie Quartet and standing behind them are the "judges." E.R. Pollok is in the back row, second from right end.

Inside the Casino, 1935

1936: E.R. Pollok Greets Father Neptune

Another Christmas gathering down by the Bay shore, complete with mariachi band. E.R. Pollok is in the bottom right corner, speaking with a musician with a guitar under his arm.

1937: Casino and Avalon Bay

We're not sure if it was some sort of tradition, meeting folks off the Steamer with a pet goat, but the caption here notes: "David Ray Arnold and Earle Pollok with their favorite goat, Greeting a Bunch 1937"
