The pictured structure was a roller coaster in an amusement zone in Long Beach called "The Pike," or Queens Park, demolished in 1979. This feature operated from 1902 to 1915 or later. Although this card has a divided back, the white space on the right remains from a pre-1907 era when messages were not allowed on the address side. The publisher's number is 403.
