Take a walk down to the corner of Monterey Street and Johnson Avenue in San Luis Obispo and take a step back in time with a peek at a new public art installation.
A lovely panoramic photo, taken from Terrace Hill in SLO in 1930 has been installed as public art on the building at the corner of Monterey and Johnson, courtesy of Crew Wealth Management, a financial management firm owned by William Henry Crew. The photo was taken by a SLO photographer named Frank Aston, whose work is in the collection of the Bennett-Loomis Archives in Arroyo Grande. The photo was taken with a rotating panoramic camera. The original film is approximately 8 inches tall and about 50 inches in length. The photo is printed on sheets of aluminum coated with a special photo surface.
