Fridays on The Pier – 1916
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.
A common practice of postcard companies in the early twentieth century was to take black and white photographs and have them colorized. I thought it might be interesting show an original 1916 postcard image of the pier next to the colorized version.
