photolitherland, here is a link to the history of the Pacific Electric Railway (the Red Car line).

Below are various photos from the railways twilight years (1953).
The location for this photo is east of Crenshaw on Exposition Blvd.
(notice the Barnum & Bailey rail car)


Below: At Ocean Park near the end of the Santa Monica Air Line.


Below: P.E. car in the Northvale Road Trench, going west toward Overland Ave. in 1953.
(it's really fun to find these locations on a contemporary map)


The other major transit was the Los Angeles Railway (LARy).

Below: A yellow and green LARY car southbound on Crenshaw Blvd in 1954.
