Great pictures of the Deauville Beach Club, Chuckaluck, here are a couple more. The captions are taken directly from the USC descriptions, which gives the anomaly of the club being complete in 1920, but still under construction in 1923. At high tide the beach wasn't nearly as wide as the postcard above would suggest.

Here's the entry from the 1931 Santa Monica phone book which gives the address as 1525 Ocean Front:

USC also includes "Deauville" in its tags for these two pictures of The Gable Beach Club, even though that was located at 808 Ocean Front (according to the 1928 Santa Monica Yellow Pages).

Other clubs on Ocean Front in 1928 include American Legion Post 123 at 1351, The Breakers Club at 1725, Club Casa Del Mar at 1811, Club Chateau at 1351, the Rotary Club and Santa Monica Athletic Club (visible to the left of the Deauville Beach Club in the photos above) at 1441, and the Sea Breeze Beach Club at 800. There's also the Crescent Bay Yacht Club at Wilshire and Ocean Front, and the Edgewater Club of Southern California at Pico and Ocean Front.
