Images of The Week
Sea Lion on The Beach – 1950s
This week’s image comes to us care of a past Seal Beach resident, Bob Robertson. The photo was taken by Bob’s father, Bill Robertson, owner of the Seal Beach Post and Wave newspaper.
According to a recent story in The Sun, a sea lion paid a visit to our beach in the vicinity of 13th Street on May 11.
Here’s a nice shot of another Seal Lion visiting the sands of Seal Beach and posing majestically for a photo opportunity with some local residents. Bob is the young fellow on the left with lots of energy. He estimates this photo was taken in the mid-fifties. Can any of our readers identify the other people in the photo?
Thanks for contributing, Bob!
We’ll share more historical pictures and photos of Seal Beach as the year progresses. Be sure to check back each week for a new Seal Beach image.
