Half Moon Bay History Quiz: Where is This Photo?

You’ve passed this location hundreds of times driving up and down Highway 1 between Montara and Half Moon Bay. The buildings in the back are no longer standing, and the artichoke fields are long gone.

Still, the land is still there and now serves a new purpose. Do you know where this photo was taken and when?

Tell us the location, date and a brief history of this historic photo, capturing the old-time artichoke farming days of the Coast. Extra points for identifying the Coastsiders pictured here.

Please reply with your answer in the comments section below by Wednesday, Aug. 15. The winner will be announced in Half Moon Bay Patch next Thursday.
