Los Angeles Transit Lines (ex-Los Angeles Railway) U Line car no. 304 is captured at 5th and Wall Streets on May 15, 1947, as an LATL crew installs new overhead for the trackless bus systems that will soon be deployed. Note the "no. 45" and LATL logotype on the door of the overhead truck.

    We’re looking east on Fifth. The two buildings on the right can be seen in Google. The final day of Line U service was 2 August 1947, replaced by Line 3 trolley buses.
