On this date in 1914, Guy M. Rush ran this ad in the Sunday edition of the Los Angeles Times.
I love these Henri DeKruif seal-themed ads for Seal Beach, and I also think that “Seal Beach–the place where good shore dinners flourish” is a much better slogan than that ghastly “Mayberry By The Sea.”
I 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.
