On this date in 1914, Guy M. Rush ran this ad in the Sunday edition of the Los Angeles Times.
We love these Henri DeKruif seal-themed ads for Seal Beach, and we also think that “Seal Beach–the place where good shore dinners flourish” is a much better slogan than that ghastly “Mayberry By The Sea.”
We also think it’s high time that the finer dining establishments in Seal Beach start using aquatic mammal waiters in tuxedos again. It would really tickle our tummies.
