MyrtleBeachPavilionIoA[Book: Lesta Sue Hardee & Janice McDonald – 2010 – 17x24cm – 130 Pages – Many B&W photos]. For almost a century, the heart of Myrtle Beach (South Carolina) was defined by a place simply called “The Pavilion.” From the original structure built in 1908, the Pavilion was the center of the resort town’s growing tourism industry. Here you could stroll the Boardwalk, play arcade games, make faces in the fun mirrors, ride rides, dance the Carolina Shag, or sit on a bench and watch everyone else do all of the above. The beloved structure and its rides fell pray to economics and a wrecking ball in 2006.
