Pacific Electric inbound East Colorado Street car no. 362 pauses at Lamanda Park Junction in Pasadena on July 13, 1940. Check out the details on this photo: the Foster and Kleiser billboard with western-horse artwork; "For World News - Los Angeles Times" placard; cast-iron scale; and the amazing "Joys of Vacation Days" PE house-ad banner, torn but still intact on the carside. It reads: Joys of Vacation Days / Most Quickly and Comfortably Reach / By Pacific Electric / Rail and Motor Coach Lines / And Connecting Coach Lines to / The Beaches / The Mountains
