Los Angeles Railway A Line Car 62 on West Temple Street

By Steve Crise

Los Angeles Railway Type-C center door “Sowbelly” car 62 is on the A-Line heading east on Temple Street at Parkman Avenue toward downtown Los Angeles. This car will eventually end its run at West Adams Boulevard at Alsace Avenue as can be read on the dash sign. F. J. (Frank) Bradford is the photographer who made this shot on September 9, 1945.

    A rather important shot when you consider the entire historic nature of the Temple Street routings. From cable to PE and then LA Ry. Once serving all the way up to early East Hollywood and turned west to end near the edge of the Colgrove district. The problematic offset crossing of Santa Monica at Virgil. The old extra loop by Echo Park (Bengtson posted Harold Lloyd filming this on his silents site). And here the out and back service into Angeleno Heights.
