Portrait on Santa Monica Pier

Families visited the Santa Monica Pier in their best finery to have a portrait taken. Pictured here are Selena McDonald Brunson and Charles E.A. Brunson holding their first born, Donald A. Brunson, the first African-American baby born in Santa Monica in 1907. Charles E.A. Brunson had a cleaning business in Santa Monica. He was an expressman at one time, then worked custodial service for two banks, one the Merchants Bank in Santa Monica.
