Huntington Beach loves its history. Since my column a couple of weeks ago about my goal to locate old buildings as the first stage in trying to create a historic marker program around the city, I have received some truly fascinating emails from people regarding sites I had little or no knowledge about. I wanted to focus on one this week because it's a terrific example of how we regularly pass places that hide their histories well. For me there is always something compelling about a building or structure that has led different lives over the years, and here we have one that truly fits the bill.

I wrote about a mural in this column two years ago . It covered a large liquor store wall facing the McDonald's near the intersection of Edinger Avenue and Edwards Street, and it depicted all the most iconic McDonald's characters, from Ronald to Grimace to the Hamburglar, all hanging out in Huntington Beach. As I described back then, the detail of the mural interested me because of how accurate the little touches were, like the old wooden H.B. sign that used to be near the pier.
