A wood-bodied Pacific Electric Railway "Mount Lowe" car sits at the platform at Rubio Canyon while passengers line up for their trip up the incline. Beyond the head of the line is the waiting room and restrooms, and at some point in time there was a gift and snack counter. 8" by 10" print attributed to Charles Lawrence, official PE photographer. Undated.

    This seems to be the original photograph on which the colored version at:

    is based.
