San Luis Obispo Homes Right Here

You know it is always fun to look back on some of the historical events in your community.  San Luis Obispo is not different.  This week, I found the attached video of the old Exposition Park Race Track.   The video was filmed in 1924.  These auto races were a regular item of entertainment in San Luis Obispo during the 1920’s and 1930’s.  The race track is long gone and not there are homes and condos where the old track was located.  However, you can still see  the hill on the south side where all the fans gathered to watch the races for free.  This was known as “Cheap Skate Hill.”

I hope you enjoy the video.  I think the quality of the video is pretty good for its day.  Do you think you will ever see straw hats and ties on the men and long dresses on the woman at the “Indy 500” or a “NASCAR” race? Anything is possible….Right?
