SLO Road Trip Down Memory Lane

Tonight on Facebook I found this wonderful 1949 Chevy advertisement entitled "San Luis Obispo: Heart of Old Spanish California" from their "Roads to Romance" series. It features some wonderful scenes from around San Luis Obispo County that year including Atascadero "The Beautiful". However, I'm surprised Paso Robles did not get any attention.

The scenes of Morro Bay and environs interested me the most for some reason, perhaps because it shows Morro Rock sans the modern causeway that connects it to the shore and creates the northern part of the harbor's protection from the Pacific Ocean. At the time this film was shot the ocean entirely surrounded the rock.
