Long Beach Treasures

ID this treasure location by 1/11/21 to be eligible for prizes.This is the "hands holding globe" illustration that should have been posted in our Dec. 18 edition and is located at 4th & Cherry.

Karen Laurence guessed that the Dec. 18 treasure location was at 4th Street and Cherry Avenue and she was the only qualified winner.

We re-use some photos in our treasure image files and can’t verify that specific location since it may have been improperly labeled. Sometimes we take the word of contestants, who often provide specific addresses and store names. On Friday morning, Jan. 1, we’ll re-visit that location to verify whether the art remains or has been painted over (If so, we’ll delete the photo from our files).

[Update: The wrong photo was used for the 4th/Cherry location. The similar, correct photo is included with this week’s contest photo.]

If you correctly identify the location of where the photo was taken on page one of this edition, your entry will be among those entered in a drawing to receive tickets or a gift certificate from CSULB Athletics, the Aquarium of the Pacific, J&L Jewelry or other contest sponsors. Winners will receive their prize by mail within one week of the current issue date.

To be eligible, print your name, address and phone number on a letter-size (8.5” x 11”) piece of paper, along with your guess. Mail to: Long Beach Treasures, c/o Beachcomber, P.O. Box 15679, Long Beach, CA 90815-0679, or email contests@beachcomber.news (subject line: Long Beach Treasures) – (email addresses may be added to our “breaking news” database) or fax to (562) 597-9410.

One entry per household; it must be received within 10 days of the photo’s publish date. We’ll announce the names of all correct entries and the contest winners in our next issue.

To become a Beachcomber contest sponsor, provide us with 12 gift certificates or gift cards with a minimum value of $25 each. Sponsors who also run a minimum of six display advertisements throughout the year will have their organization’s logo displayed on page one of every issue.
