The picture of Manhattan Beach Pier ("A Renewed Buoyancy About Piers" by Sam Kaplan, Oct. 11) brought back childhood memories from 1913-1922. I have early snaps of Manhattan (in) a scrapbook I'm putting together about some of my first 75 years of experience for my grandchildren.
I remember well some of the old-timers . . . and my brother delivering groceries by horse and wagon.
