Aerial Seal Beach – 1920s
This photo is listed as being from the twenties, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was actually taken in the early thirties. Except for a few cars driving through past on highway along the top of the photo, Seal Beach is empty of any signs of life. The pier, Main Street, the roller coaster and Joy Zone all seem deserted. Maybe this was a chilly winter morning during the off-season, but this image seems to capture Seal Beach in a moment when it was well past its heyday as an amusement park attraction.
