San Luis Obispo 1949

So where were you in 1949?  You really don’t need to answer.  Attached is a promotional travel video from 1949 produced by Chevrolet.  This is an example of the type of shorts that were shown in movie theaters around the country.  In this video, you get to take a look at San Luis Obispo, Atascadero, Morro Rock, Cuesta grade and of course that brand new 1949 Chevrolet sedan.  Keep in mind this was before very many people had a television, so most people got news from radio and the only videos were in the movie houses.  We’ve come a long way since that time in 1949.

Look for more videos in the future!
