Location #3

Downtown San Luis Obispo. I included this location because of the large number of good vintage photos that are available. I start this location off with some shots that I did looking down the streets around Marsh, Higuera, and Monterey. I will fill in with vintage photos of similar composition as I collect them.

Updated 3/8/2006.... Marsh St. bridge (1909) photos added.

Looking west from Santa Rosa and Higuera toward Monterey. The 101 route made the turn north on Monterey.
