April 28th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1918, a lady’s purse was lost in Seal Beach between 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.

April 28_1918_Lost_PurseThe Santa Ana Register does not report whether there was any response to this May 1st personal ad. There is no way to discover the name of this mother or the fate of her “boys.” Ninety-nine years later, I can’t resist hoping that her “treasured articles” were returned to her, and her boys returned un-scarred months later from World War I and lived happy and prosperous lives.
