A sad event is documented for posterity in this image of the final U Line scheduled run on the Los Angeles Railway, August 3, 1947. The car is decorated to read "Last car to run on the U Line Sunday Aug. 3" and "Last Sowbelly on the streets of Los Angeles."

    The date of the U Line Abandonment was Aug 3, 1947 This picture is not at Florence & Vermont. It could be on Mc Clintock, Hoover, 23rd or Washington Blvd.
