Pacific Electric PCC streamline car no. 5000 is custom-decorated to promote enlistment in the Navy’s flying program (likely during the 1942-1945 timeframe). An unidentified PE interurban rests idle in the background. The car’s destination board reads “Subway Terminal.” The location is possibly adjacent to the Los Angeles River.
