Pacific Electric interurban no. 866 with hand-lettered destination sign reading "Universal City / Los Nogales ONLY" negotiates the muddy and flooded Cahuenga Blvd.right-of-way as police look on. The date is March 1938.

    Date is March 1938, just after the massive storm and floods of that month. The car is outbound from Los Angeles and heading towards the San Fernando Valley. It is on Cahuenga Boulevard, leaving Hollywood, and about to enter Cahuenga Pass. It will be able to travel past Universal City to the station of Los Nogales (sign on car), which was at Ventura Boulevard and Vineland Boulevard. Just north of there, the bridges over the Los Angeles River and Tujunga Wash had been washed out.
