Downtown Pacific Grove in the 1940s was a place John Steinbeck was at home.

Holmans Department Store was the place where everyone in town shopped (on right).



Once located on the roof of the Holmans Department Store was the Garden Restaurant, it is very possible that
John Steinbeck may have had a lunch or dinner here.


During the 1940s Lovers Point included a municipal pool where many locals gathered for lots of people watching, John Steinbeck would have seen these
crowds gathering along the beach.
