Pacific Coast Railroad Bridge, Avila Beach 1966

Before the current bridge to Port San Luis was built over San Luis Creek travelers used the old single lane Pacific Coast Railroad bridge. This view looks back at Avila Beach and the Union Oil tanks from October 15, 1966.
At this time the Harford pier was closed and a new parking lot was under construction on filled in tideland. A forthcoming post will reprint a historical society tour of the area.
