From ancient tribes to European explorers, San Luis Obispo has mesmerized all of those who have had the fortune to see it. In San Luis Obispo and Cal Poly, author Thomas Maxwell-Long brings the beauty and richness of this community into a single volume; documenting the growth of San Luis Obispo along the 19th and 20th centuries with remarkable, vintage postcards. The story of San Luis Obispo cannot be told without telling the story of the California Polytechnic School, for it is within the symbiosis of this relationship that San Luis Obispo was able to establish itself as one of the most unique communities in California.
