The Pacific Electric whizzes past Arcadia Tower in this undated image by Jack Whitmeyer. With all the construction in the area lately, the Gold Line Extension will be going by this area once again, in many places on the old P. E. right of way. Of course, now there will be no tower and no freight lines to cross.
