The description states:


Panoramic view of picturesque Monterey Bay shoreline as seen by visitors traveling the Pacific Grove-Carmel Highway.

–This is a reference to what is now called Skyline Drive, some points of which give similar views to people driving along that section of highway. The increased population and development in the intervening years have reduced the size of the visible beach significantly.

This card likely dates from the 1950s.
