    Trying to figure out where this is in relation to present day landmarks. The terrain looks too hilly to be on the actual Alhambra-Temple City line, and I thought the Ascot Speedway was in the Southern District area. The El Sereno area, which is hilly, had the Four Tracks of the North.

      Hi Bob…based on looking at historic orthoimagery the location is approximately lat/lon -118.195143, 34.070192. It’s just south of where the lines merge into dual tracks. Immediately west of the northern part of Ascot Speedway.

    Just south of Indian Village. What confused me was the “Alhambra-San Gabriel-Temple City” on the head sign. Probably should have read “Los Angeles”.
