Los Angeles Transit Lines (ex-LARy) 9 Line streetcar no. 190 turns from Hoover onto private right-of-way from the street. The destination board reads "9 / To 48th Str. & Crenshaw." Note the interesting billboards on the building side; one advertises a temperance issue in an upcoming campaign ("The Hour is 12! / Liquor Control / Vote NO on 2 - Yes on 12!" - obviously trying to reduce on- and off-sale liquor sale hours; the other promotes upcoming events at Carrell Speedway in Gardena (located at what is today the intersection of Vermont and Artesia), including "Indianapolis driver Rex Mays."
