Old Paso Robles City Jail 1964



Here is something new for you dedicated viewers in Paso Robles. This was labeled City Jail and in a 1964 box.
I suspect the Mail Pouch billboard was painted on after this jail was out of business. Perhaps the county is missing an opportunity by not having a sponsor for today’s jail. They sell naming rights to stadiums and halls why not jails?
I don’t have much information on this other than what is on the sign. Anyone know if this is still around?

UPDATE: Found this clipping from the front page of the then Telegram-Tribune from January 30, 1942.
