Looking north from Ocean Avenue on Main Street

On the right, Marina Cleaners occupies the current location of Seal Beach Music.
On the side of the building where Endless Summer operates today,
a painted advertisement tells us, "Bathers Welcome,"
apparently to come inside and enjoy “cold drinks” and “malts” and “sundaes”
made from delicious “Mountain View ice cream.”
Next door is Seal Beach Music, followed by the Edgewater Pre-School.
Further down, you can visit a rock shop, Vinzant’s Variety, and John’s Food King.
In the distance, we see Brock’s Drugs (better known to many of us later as the Corner Drug)
and further down, the Bay Theater.

On the left, it’s a little harder to make out the details.
The Irisher Cafe now occupies the Bob And Chet’s Cafe and Cocktail Lounge location at 121 Main Street,
Further down a Rexall drugs store occupies a familiar spot, but it’s probably a few years before it became Bob’s Rexall.
The Walt’s Wharf building hosts the long gone Marina Market, and a cafe sign hangs in front
of what was once the Green Pepper Mexican restaurant (and then BJ’s Pizza and now Woody’s Diner).
