This is a photo of the H & H Bar at 862 Monterey Street in San Luis Obispo taken in the early 1900s. I love the photo for the man in the middle, John Baptista Romo, one of Old SLO Town's more colorful characters. He was a cowboy on the Hearst Ranch, but liked to dress this way, even when not working. The pistol he sports was used for shooting squirrels on the ranch. When he was older, he took to wearing medals and decorative items on his chest just for the attention. Seems like when I was a kid, there were still a few of these colorful holdouts to be found, but not very many any more. Where did they all go?
