San Luis Obispo County Map, 1941

This map published in the October 9, 1941 edition of the Telegram-Tribune was drawn for the paper by California School of Fine Arts student Phyllis Mason. It is interesting to see what was deemed is important at the time. Cattle are shown where Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant is today. Almond trees bloom west fo Paso Robles. Cambria has an airport. A fisherman and boat at Morro Bay, oil tankers off of Cayucos and Avila. Wherever the map has a gap, cattle raising and wheat production fill things in.
