View of the Cottage Club and Pier from Terrace Gables, Falmouth Heights, Mass., undated

PC001.02.01.USMA.0980.0070.005 (RS236)

Description

An exterior view of the Cottage Club and Pier from the Terrace Gables hotel across Grand Avenue in Falmouth Heights, Massachusetts. William Tobey built the Dutch Colonial style, gambrel-roof structure after the original Casino was destroyed by fire in 1909. The building also included a post office and movie theater. People line up on the pier to board a launch for a cruise while others stroll along the boardwalk. In the later 1910s, the name changed to the Cottage Club and in the 1960s changed to the Casino or Casino-by-the-Sea. Casino Wharf FX now occupies this site.
