Reader Susan Rose Fenske wrote recently from Brownsville, Ore., after finding my blog while searching for historical Pomona stuff. She attended Pomona High before graduating from Ganesha High in 1959. After her 50th high school reunion, she began thinking about times gone by.
And those included Seapy’s, a restaurant on East Holt near the old Pomona High.
“I used to go here with my friends and order mashed potatoes and gravy and chocolate cream pie. I loved those two things and ordered a la carte,” Fenske writes.
“I understand the restaurant has been gone for many, many years now. Do you know of any pictures of the restaurant when it was as it was?”
Bruce Guter of the Pomona Public Library couldn’t find any photos of the restaurant but he did find the charming advertisement at left in the 1956 Pomona High yearbook.
Anyone remember Seapy’s?
