A Los Angeles & Pasadena Electric Railway car stands ready in front of Lippincott's Funeral Parlors (Undertakers, Embalmers, Cremating), draped in funerary bunting. The LA&P was the predecessor line to the Pacific Electric. This is in Pasadena.

    Yes, the scene is in Pasadena. Lippincott’s Funeral Parlor was at 43 W Colorado, so the car is facing east toward Fair Oaks Avenue.

    The large building in the background is the Hotel Stevenson, which was at the northeast corner of Colorado & De Lacey.
