Ruby Pier of the Present

Ruby Pier is a large oceanside amusement park, and it remains popular even though its numbers of customers have declined with the advent of giant theme parks. Even though they are much more expensive, they have replaced the oceanside parks in popularity. It teems with people in the summertime and has rides as well as booths where skills are used to win prizes.

Ruby Pier in the Beginning

Readers get a glimpse of the Pier years ago when Eddie meets Ruby in Heaven. Ruby's face is on a grand entrance. Eddie recognizes her from pictures he has seen. The park is built by her wealthy husband and named for her, but it has since been rebuilt, after a fire that caused the man who created it to lose his fortune and his health.
