On this date in 1920, Seal Beach fans of fresh milk were presented with an opportunity to enjoy the freshest of milk. A “Fresh Jersey Cow” who was a “fine milker” and”very gentle” was listed for sale in the Santa Ana Register’s classified ads by F. L. Bailey at 259 5th Street.
Ninety-nine years later, F. L. Bailey and the cow are gone and the address has been changed to 412 Marina Drive, but there is still milk (and other beverages) available at Marina Liquor, one of the businesses at this location.
