Pacific Electric streetcar no. 384 with an East 7th Street destination board passes the Redondo Food Center (consisting of Tony's Fruits & Vegetables, Paul's Quality Meats, and Slater Fancy Groceries).

    I used to own a house at 1012 Redondo Ave near here. This looks like the Redondo/7th street intersection to me, facing east. Anyone know? Thanks,Paul

    I had to look up local lines in Interurbans Special 60 to determine that this was in Long Beach.

    When I get back to my condo I want to try and map out all the Redondo Ave connections/lines. I just found out it was a double track line and apparently there was an intra city loop route involving Redondo. The street was probably a little wider than now and no curbs. My old house was 1012 Redondo Ave built in 1912. I’ve never seen an older picture of it and I notice Pacific Electric photos from 1930 and earlier are very scarce. I’d love to see the original brick shop they had on Long Beach Boulevard.
