    This was taken in 1940 with the PE crossing over Ballona Creek
    on it’s way to REDONDO BEACH through PLAYA DEL REY.

    Looking closely you can see three bridges in this picture. Sadly the Pacific electric bridge is the only one not there today. Though the bridge ancor points on each bank are still there. The first one in the background is where Culver blvd crosses the creek and the second one in the background is the Lincoln blvd bridge.
