Los Angeles Railway car no. 200 (B17), packed with 44 seats on 8 Line service, sits idle at the Sunset and Spring Street Terminus on a lazy Thursday afternoon, July 31, 1941. In just a few short months, Japan will attack Pearl Harbor and Los Angeles will be forever transformed.

The public service advertisement on the carbody side reads:

School’s Out
Kids Are Out
Let’s Look Out
All Out For Safety
