Because of its shape, it was named "Rainbow Pier". In the late s, the City of Long Beach began filling in the water area enclosed by the Rainbow Pier breakwater, creating Rainbow Lagoon and Wilmore Park, [ sic ]  additional public trust lands upon which a larger, more modern auditorium was constructed.
Filling of the shoreline area continued in the late s and early s with the Tidelands Filling Project. Advertising with coupons appealing to families appeared in local newspapers. A Kiddieland collection of carnival flat rides, a "Bud" Hurlbut miniature train and petting zoo were installed on the silted-in new sand and public restrooms were built of concrete and cinder-block near a new picnic area, giving it a post-World War II modern look, and the park was renamed "Nu-Pike" as result of a write-in naming contest.
In , the name changed again to "Queen's Park", to coincide with the public opening of the historical ocean liner RMS Queen Mary , which the city had purchased as a combination tourist attraction and hotel. The park retained this name until closing and demolition — Most locals continued calling it "The Pike". A grand bath-house was constructed at the shore and was scheduled to open on Independence Day, , the day on which the Pacific Electric Railroad established service connecting communities along the line to offices and shopping in Downtown Los Angeles and bringing bathers and families south to shoreline recreation.
Admission was charged for use of the clear, 'vacuumed', indoor freshwater pool, changing-rooms, and waterslide, all of which lay beyond a colonnade and sundeck. An interior balcony surrounding the pool and an outdoor one facing the beach offered people-watching on reclining lounges.
The name was later changed to "The Plunge". When it closed, it was converted to the Strand Theater. Until , primary access to bathing was over unpaved roads by horse and buggy. A large livery and stables had been built to care for the animals of the bathers. Opening the Pacific Electric Big Red Car line to Long Beach diminished the importance of the livery, which closed as the automotive culture of Southern California developed.
It was converted into skating rink in then a dance hall by , "The Majestic" featuring big bands, and in the s it changed hands and was renamed "The Lido Ballroom". Long Beach downtown featured several theaters, many of which were along the "Walk of Lights". Several small shop-front theaters, exhibiting side-shows and independent films, came and went along the Walk of a Thousand Lights, but one big and very tall one, the Virginia, was later converted into the dark ride "Whispering River".
The Strand Theater offered a double feature, after being converted to a picture house when The Plunge closed. The band was led by Herbert L. Clarke, who had been a member of John Philip Sousa's Band. Beginning at the entrance to the "Walk of a Thousand Lights" through the arcade archway entrance of the last surviving building associated with The Pike, and unique, Ocean Center Building containing Hollywood on the Pike  cabaret and an amusement arcade.
One could stroll west along the midway past storefront games, such as ball-pitch and shooting galleries , as well as outdoor amusement machines such as fortune predicting weight-scales, and several large indoor collections of coin-operated Electro-mechanical amusements - pinball , skill-prize merchandisers , penny-pitch, nickelodeon viewers, love and strength testers, fortune tellers, the House of Mirrors and more.
Among the most popular coin-operated amusement machines and devices were the redemption games which dispensed tickets, such as skee-ball. Proximity to the Naval Shipyards and its many sailors on extended leave during retrofitting supported an ink economy. The dense collection of tattoo shops made next-door and cross-street neighbors of many minor and world-renowned artists.
The shop is the oldest in the US. Kari Barba purchased the shop in , and it still operates to this day under the name "Outer Limits Tattoo". It is the last remaining business from the original Pike. Lite A Line was one of the last businesses to close on the Pike Midway. From low-brow seedy dives like Rudy's cocktails and open front liquor stores to upscale cabarets featuring suggestive girly-shows like Hollywood on the Pike , many an opportunity existed for visiting sailors and locals to get drunk - which they did, often in excess.
A side effect of mass inebriation and intoxication was that every pocket and corner of the entertainment zone had on it at one time any number of bodily fluids. A variety of eating establishments ranged from snack stands with corn-dogs, cotton candy, popcorn and hot nuts, or one could sit at soda-pop fountains and counter service restaurants like Lee's Barbecue with menus of chicken, ribs and fish meals, to a secluded booth with table service on linen.
Looff was one of the first to be the first of the great American carousel master carvers, having installed the first successful carousel at Coney Island , and developing amusements, carousels and roller coasters around the U. In , Charles I. In conference facilities, classrooms, courtrooms and similar smaller spaces, short reverberation times and avoidance of disturbing echoes are important objectives.
Sound Isolation for noise control and acoustical privacy: Sound separations are critical in performing arts and worship facilities, hotels and multi-party residential construction, classrooms, courtrooms, hospital bed towers and in office buildings to name a few examples.
Speech privacy in office buildings is often aided through use of electronic sound masking, which establishes a minimum required level of background noise with a controlled frequency spectrum.
Steady-state ambient background noise levels in buildings normally result from the ordinary operation of mechanical, electrical and plumbing MEP systems.
Outdoor noise studies may consist of field measurements and analysis using drawings and maps or predictive modeling to determine the impact of existing or planned noise sources on existing or newly planned buildings. One example is the noise impact of aircraft flyovers on a new school being constructed near an existing airport.
In addition to the impact of existing environmental noise on buildings, we must also consider new noise being introduced by buildings or developments that can impact nearby communities. Examples of this include construction of amphitheatres, theme parks, bars and restaurants with outdoor patios and open-air stadiums near communities. An ideal sound reinforcement design covers an audience with amplified sound in a manner that provides uniform loudness, good speech intelligibility, musical clarity, natural tonal quality and proper localization to the natural acoustic sources.
The basic function of an AV presentation system is to display images, reproduce the associated audio and provide user-friendly media control.
However, the capabilities of modern AV systems go far beyond this description. System designers must keep abreast of rapidly changing technologies in networked AV, digital audio signal processing platforms, flat-panel displays, new projection engines and optics, control system advancements and much more. Our team has extensive experience designing AV presentation systems for corporate boardrooms, conference rooms and training facilities, hotel meeting spaces, courtrooms, government centers and university academic buildings.
Our firm has designed digital signage, scoreboards, video boards, video replay and scoreboard control for both professional and collegiate sports facilities. Over the years, we have provided broadcast-related consulting for commercial and public access radio and television studios, business television and medical training facilities, performing arts venues, convention centers, city and county government facilities, courthouses and sports facilities.
Networked audio and video is now common, even necessary for large systems that have equipment racks distributed throughout a building or an entire campus. AV is becoming significantly more dependent on network resources and more integrated with the IT environment. This leads to shared equipment spaces and cabling pathways. What is defined as a low voltage system by the National Electric Code in the U.
