1910 era San Luis Obispo saloon

I don’t have to tell you, times are tough today. It’s time to head down to the saloon and toss one down the hatch.
This undated, uncaptioned bar was somewhere in San Luis Obispo. There was a choice of whiskey from Irving’s to The Old Government or you could tap the barrel of Tennessee Moonshine.
The last item was rung up for 95 cents on the register. Cigar boxes of San Luis Perfecto’s are on the top of the bar.
The lights were both gas and electric; my guess is this in the 1910’s.
Spittoons lined the floor; it is likely only refined lady ever in the place was the picture on the wall.
Last call historians, anyone know where this is or recognize the people?
