Earthquake Aftermath – March 11, 1933

The earthquake shook this Sixth Street off its foundation.
The Lothian House at Ocean Avenue and Second Street sustained serious damage, but it was repaired and still stands today. Those palm trees to the right are much taller now.
We’ll share more historical pictures and photos of Seal Beach as the year progresses. Be sure to check back each Monday for a new Seal Beach image.
