Sea Urchin: Scene on Beach (Sea Urchin and her Sweetheart)

Postcard of a scene from the film: Sea Urchin and her sweetheart. The location was probably West Cliff Drive:

"On Saturday the last scenes of the "Sea Urchin," the new Santa Cruz movie players' first production, were enacted at the studio at Laveaga Park. The last scenes taken were the "Interiors" and consequently the last few days in photographing were spent at the studio. The exteriors, most of them, were taken along the cliffs and on the small beaches along the cliff drive."
