December 17th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1953, desperate Seal Beach shoppers with only one more shopping week left until Christmas to find the perfect gift for their loved ones could find inspiration in this Philco Clock-Radio ad from Raines Radio & TV at 127 Main Street printed in the Long Beach Independent.

This was a co-op ad from a bunch of local Philco dealers, so it wasn’t just Raines Radio & TV’s ad. Still, imagine walking down to Main Street to buy a cutting edge, state of the art clock radio!
