Dedicated to a pioneer that helped make Marina del Rey a reality


Some of the many photographs supplied by Linda L. Schmidt, daughter of the late Larry Norman.
(Clicking on these photos will generate a much larger, better detailed image.)


Larry Norman at Mt. Baldy. An avid snow skier as well as an avid water skier. With Lake Los Angeles just a short two blocks from his home Larry and family went snow skiing a great deal.
A picture of early Venice. In the lower right hand corner is Trailer City at 346 Washington Street. The lower left corner is Nightingale Elementary School. The roller coaster in the middle of the picture was at Pacific Ocean Park, a.k.a. P.O.P. The canal in the picture is the main canal from the ocean.

Larry Norman (with the hat on), and my wife Rose sitting at a table with Lester (Robbie) Robinson and his wife. Robbie managed and wrote for the Venice Vanguard newspaper.

The young boy skiing is Larry's son Vincent who passed away in 1995. He is being towed by Larry, daughter Linda and a friend. (Notice in the background, on top of the hill, sits Loyola University.)
