Historic Caption: Los Angeles. Day broke in Los Angeles today with the usual crowded bus stop, people waiting for streetcars and buses that were tied up in the barns and garages by the mid-night walk-out of the Los Angeles Transit Lines workers. Thousands made their way to work this morning with the aid of their thumbs and courtesy of passing motorists.

Research suggests that this photo was shot at the intersection of Adams Blvd. at West Blvd.

    There’s a photo of a two-car train of Twelves, with 1260 in the lead, on the Santa Monica Air Line, providing special service during the LATL strike.

    Date of the photo? (Just for the record.)
