Cap’n Macs

I would definitely classify this image as a tourist photo. The gentleman is posing in front of Cap’n Macs Bar & Restaurant. I researched the establishment, but I did not find any information on the bar’s location. The bar has probably been closed for decades. I am guessing the photo was taken in the late 1940s.

Besides being a bar and restaurant, Cap’n Macs had cold beer, live bait, groceries, pier fishing, and trailer space. Offering a little bit of everything, the business provided the perfect combination of goods for tourists. I view Palm Trees in the background, which informs me the place was located in a warmer climate.

I would love to know the history behind Cap’n Macs. If anyone has any information, please share.
