Design for the Alpine Division seems to betray the origin of this screw-back lapel pin as Pacific Electric. There are no makers marks to be found. While the club was quartered in the Annex to 6th & Main, presumably there is a connection implied with Mt. Lowe and the Alpine Tavern facilities.

From the collection of Al Donnelly comes this beautifully preserved 1949 pass for the Los Angeles Transit Lines. As Al puts it, "a weekly pass six years before James Dean made the observatory into an icon." Thanks for sharing, Al!
