Los Angeles Railway car no. 425 on B Line service pauses for a photograph in front of Kerckhoff-Cuzner Lumber, which we featured earlier in a Ralph Melching photo here. Note the US 101 and 99 highway signs in the foreground of both images. This must have been a popular spot for railfan photographers to capture streetcar action.
