    Hello,
    In the 1930’s, Huntington Beach was a totally flat, empty alluvial flood plain. All of the waters from the local mountains came rushing down the rivers into this wide flood plain on its way to the Pacific Ocean. Today, tons of housing and businesses are in place, but it is still designated the “flood plain.”


    The photo was showing a trend in mobility of the So Cal families looking for the next thing in leisure activity. (sounds familiar, today, too…)

    Life in the small beach town was good…


    (article historic HB archives )
    {The city of HB leased property from the Huntington Beach Company for a campground, adding facilities and picnic tables. The Sea Breeze Auto Camp was located south of Lake St, along Ocean Avenue (present day PCH) and the railroad tracks to present day Beach Blvd.


    Later, the Huntington Beach Company property was deeded to William S. Ebert after he bought out the city’s interest. Ebert added an oil and gas station at the intersection of Ocean Ave and First Street in 1928, to accommodate travelers. At the same time, the city was adding “ornamental lights” and traffic control signals at the intersection of Main Street and Ocean Avenue. Life in Huntington Beach was getting busier.

    By 1938, Ebert reported to the city council a total of 57k registrations representing a total of 140k people stayed at the Sea Breeze, an average stay of 16 days per person. The total number of beach goers that season was 630,000, a 90% increase over 1937. Only 3 percent of the people reported were from Huntington Beach. (almost like today, more people from out of town use the beach than the local residents)

    Ebert constructed beach cottages at sea breeze and later gained city council approval to install a neon sign at the entrance, still a novelty at the time. }

    The Pacific Ocean is to the right, going south on Coast Highway is to the upper right. Everything to the left of the highway is the area that was in the old photos.

    The bear is going through a buried trash can. That was how they tried to keep the bears out.

    Imagine the stink that would be raised now if they put this in a yearbook? Someone would get bent out of shape over it.

    That year, the mosquito problem was particularly tough, so the government had to take drastic measures.

    The #38 in the sports cars pic (you might know this, or might not care!) is the 'Twareg Chrysler' special, built & driven by Andre Gessner, who I corresponded with. He later hacked up this car to create a front wheel drive beast- an ugly sucker called the 'Front Runner', which he claimed was the first front wheel drive sports racer...also said he built the first 427 powered rear engine sports racer..also said he worked for Carroll Shelby on the first 427 Cobra...

    Not a CHP car or officer. CHP vehicles have always used just one white door per side and that uniform looks like a sheriff uniform not CHP.

    Thanks! I'm always interested to learn more about the old "one off" specials. There is some info on the car on Tams site but not a lot. The color shot of the Twarg is from Tams. The other shot is, I believe, of the 427 R/E car you refer to at a Riverside Can Am race.

    Notice how the families are allowed to drive right up next to docked Navy ships. I doubt if that happens today. It's just like everything else. It wasn't all that long ago that you could go to any sporting event without being frisked or run through some kind of detector. And there was no need for one because people knew how to act. Now high schools have metal detectors. I'm not sure where it will all end.
