December 21st in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1913, the Guy M. Rush Company ran a Christmas themed ad for Seal Beach in the Los Angeles Times, starring Henri DeKruif’s indefatigable seals.

This time the aquatic rascals are stuffing the entire Seal Beach tract (complete with the pier) into the “Los Angeles” stocking because, as we all know, “A Seal Beach lot is a gift that grows in value always.”

And remember: No Undertow!

– Michael Dobkins
