Fridays on The Pier – 1915
The Seal Beach pier has been a favorite subject for photographers throughout its 95 years of history. Every Friday between now and the end of the Seal Beach Founders Celebration, we’ll be posting an image of the pier.
Once you get past the obvious pre-Adobe Photoshop cut and paste job on the seal lion, this photo reveals plenty of fascinating details, especially when you blow up the background.
A nice look at the future location of the Jewel City Cafe.
A glimpse of Main Street past the pier entryway arch. You can see the electrical poles for the Pacific Electric red car line that ran down Main Street and the drugstore where Clancy’s is today. We’ll get a closer look at this view of Main Street on Monday.
The brand new dance pavilion and bathhouse, waiting for an influx of tourists.
The relocated old pavilion, empty, forlorn, and soon to be torn down to make room for the roller coaster and the Joy Zone.
That’s all for this week. Have a great weekend, and be sure to check back each week for more historical photos and stories of Seal Beach.
