April 7th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1922, the Baldwin Piano Company filed a suit against the Seal Beach Inn and Cafe and its proprietor, F. C. Blankenship. According to the suit, the inn had purchased a grand piano on contract for $85o on March 29, 1918, but the contract had not been fulfilled. The Baldwin Piano Company’s suit was for recovery of the piano or $850 and $150 for damages and court costs. The Baldwin Piano Company had filed a similar suit in 1920 when the lease on the piano had run out without being paid, but it apparently had not resolved the issue.
