Here's a card showing Pier Avenue in about 1905.
Here's on that shows the dancing pavilion.
And, finally, a beach scene showing a lot of overdressed people. It appears that there is quite a bit of litter on the beach, and something that resembles a barrel down by the water.
Here are the backs of the cards in the same order.
The first one was sent to Mrs Mirrieto Kiser in Chicago in 1908. The message reads:

The second one was sent to Miss Gladys Smith in Regina (?), California in 1913. The message reads:
