100 years of open beaches. Enjoy.
A feature-length documentary about the social and political history of the Oregon coast is available for free viewing in five segments online at vimeo.com/album/2312981. The film, entitled The Politics of Sand, was made by Portland-based Anchor Pictures, directed by Tom Olsen, and produced by the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum. It covers about 150 years of history through engaging archival footage, photographs, and interviews, and is well worth watching for anyone who wants to understand the context of the legislative actions taken by Governors Oswald West and Tom McCall to protect public access to the shore.
