Los Angeles Railway on Spring near 5th, 1904
Another Post Card of a Modern City: Los Angeles 1904. LARY streetcars shoulder their way along congested Spring Street near 5th. The roof sign on the car in the foreground reads “WASHINGTON ST- WESTERN AVE.”
From Ralph Cantos:
It is very interesting to compare this 1904 postcard photo of LARY cars, with the 1909 post card shot on Broadway. In just 5 years, motor vehicles have almost completely replaced horse drawn vehicles. Things in LA were only going to get a HELL of a lot worse in the decades to come.
