Main Street Mondays – May 1913
Main Street in Seal Beach has been a favorite subject for photographers throughout its 95 years of history. Every Monday between now and the end of the Seal Beach Founders Celebration, we’ll be posting a different image of Main Street.
Having set the poles for the electric wires, workers now grade the dirt road known as Main Street in preparation for the new Pacific Electric red car line that will run along Ocean Avenue from Long Beach to Bay City before curving on to Main Street to join the Long Beach Newport line at Electric Avenue. Landing Hill can be seen in the background, and the old pavilion stands on the right where it had been temporarily located while the new pavilions were being built.
Be sure to check back each week for more historical photos and stories of Seal Beach.
