A Little Manhattan Beach History….

October 8, 2018

A while back I came across this video by Civic Couch. It features past and current Manhattan Beach City Council Member Steve Napolitano and Brad Jacobsen discussing the iconic Robbie Hutas photo taken at the 1976 Manhattan Open.

I’m a history buff (if you haven’t figured that out yet) and enjoy discovering these local nuggets. I thought you might, too. Brad Jacobson kindly gave me permission to share it with you.

Several years ago I went to a Robbie Hutas photo exhibit at the old Cannery Row gallery and spent about an hour speaking with him. He’s been taking photographs since the 1940s and, as Steve mentions, has quite a photography collection documenting life in the South Bay.
