Big Bear Lake

Ahhh, a nifty view, from the mid-1950s, of the busy little village of Big Bear Lake, Calif. Located at an elevation of 6,750 feet in the San Bernardino mountains. These photos show a diversity of stores, gas stations and motels that would cater to the needs of tourists. Only about 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles, the Big Bear Lake area has been the setting for many motion pictures, including “Paint Your Wagon,” “The Parent Trap,” “Bonanza,” and “Dr. Dolittle.”
