Passenger traffic was brisk during the early days along Ocean Avenue  in Los Angeles, possibly on opening day of the Long Beach Line, July 4, 1902. Car No. 219 was one of 99 cars of similar designs known as the Huntington standard car. It had an open and section for passengers.

    I like to know was this at the beach! On Ocean Ave and Granada were now “Club Ripples” is now. When did they remove the tracks. Do you have any more photos in Long Beach. Also when i am driving down on 7th st at the corner i can see there was used to be railroads crossing there.
    When i walk from the parking lot i can tell there was tracks i can see rails used to be there. Where did it go to!!
