Point Lobos

.

I took those pictures in San Francisco going to Half Moon Bay on a trip with Vincent. Hey Vinç gotta go there again one day ...






The Point Lobos Toll Road Company, of which Dr. H. Gates was the head and front, opened what is now known as the Point Lobos avenue as a toll road early in the sixties, and at about the same time the late Junius G. Foster opened the Cliff House at the terminus of the road. The new road was operated in opposition to the Ocean House road, which started from Seventeenth street, ran over the hills by the old Ocean House race track and the Lake House to the ocean beach, for many years the only route for reaching that portion of the county to view the seals, unless one was willing to trudge over six miles of sand dunes.
