Guy Crabb's Book

San Luis Obispo 100 Years of Downtown Businesses: Monterey and Marsh Streets The Monterey & Marsh Streets book is full of incredible information with seldom seen old photos and photos of current businesses. The book also reveals little known information about people who were once part of the business community in San Luis Obispo over the past 100 years. Historical names such as Call, Kamm, Quintana, Sinsheimer, Wickenden, Feliciano, Long, Warden, Wade, Jack, Stover and many others are mentioned in this book.

The Monterey and Marsh Streets book informs the readers of fascinating information, such as hidden treasure buried inside of a cornerstone of one of our historic buildings and that a popular restaurant on Monterey Street was once a coroner and embalming business. The book will also tell readers fun facts, such as the name of the bridge in Mission Plaza, what the "J.P." in J.P. Andrews stands for, and the names of many of the historical buildings on Monterey and Marsh Streets.
