Huntington Beach Then & Now: The Oldest Family-Run Business In Town

Then // In 1931, an innovative oil worker named Dwight Clapp opened the first on-the-beach concession stand in Huntington Beach, hawking burgers, hot dogs and ice cream bars. It's pictured in the "Then" shot, on a 4th of July in the early 1940s. The naval ship in the distance offered tours to people who were ferried out from shore. 

Now // Today, Dwight's son Jack keeps the family business alive (the oldest family-run business in town), and so Dwight's (and Jack's) are still going strong.
