Seal Beach: 1958

Seal Beach: 1958

From circa 1958, a Kodachrome taken by my mother, who could handle a 35mm camera in a pinch. My parents had friends with a summer place in Seal Beach, California, a coastal community on the border of Orange and Los Angeles counties. In the foreground are my parents' bosom pals who owned or rented the place behind the Ford station wagon. That's me at the bottom of the slide; the boy making his precarious way up is the son of the aforementioned couple. Dad (with the cap) appears to be zoning out, judging by the beer cans by his side. I wonder if any of these beachside homes exist today. View full size.
