On this date in 1959, the Long Beach Independent ran the following advertisement for the opening of Boatswain’s Locker. Note that the address given is 10 Bolsa Avenue.
Today’s locals think of Bolsa Avenue ending at Main Street, but if you look at a map of Seal Beach, you’ll see that Marina Drive continues the path of Bolsa Avenue to the west end on town and crosses the bridge to join Long Beach’s North Marina Drive. Before the Long Beach Marina was built in the late fifties and early sixties, Marina Drive was known as Bolsa Avenue.
Most recently this address belonged to the now closed Ca Everglades and still belongs to So Cal Sports and Marine Repair.
