Pacific Electric no. 1359 makes a late day run heading south down Fair Oaks Avenue, just south of Green Street and the Green Hotel in Pasadena. The park and hotel are still there today, but most of the trees in this shot have been removed. Ernie Leo took this shot and notes it was taken at 6:39 pm, June 21, 1938. There must have been "June Gloom" even back then as the mountains cannot be seen in this north-facing shot.
