The intersection of Fair Oaks and Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena, looking at the southwest corner and the Pacific Electric Railway ticket office and passenger waiting room in 1903. The PE car is heading south on Fair Oaks as a parade or procession of some sort heads east on Colorado.While there are a few horse drawn carriages in the image, there are no automobiles. Upstairs from the PE office is the law firm of A. R. Metcalfe. Today the first floor is the home of the Cheesecake Factory. 4.5" by 6.5" print, photographer unknown.
