Throwback Thursday – Jack Taylor’s Oceanic Café!
Check out this great photo for this edition of the Oceanside Chamber’s “Throwback Thursday!” The Oceanside Historical Society has agreed to let the Chamber use their photos. If you like any of the Throwback Thursday photos you see, please contact the Historical Society to purchase prints. They have a whole archive of historical photos for sale.
The Oceanic Cafe was located at 207 North Hill Street. That is present day the 200 block of North Coast Highway (on the west side) and right in between Mission Ave and Pier View Way.
This photo was taken circa 1925 and operated in early years by a man named Jack Taylor. The Oceanic Café was home to many regularly scheduled business and rotary meetings. In 1923 this cafe was the regular meeting place of the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce, which of course is close to home for us!
As always, we use these photos courtesy of the Oceanside Historical Society.
