LARY 1035 on Gage Avenue
Los Angeles Railway Birney no. 1035 sits idle on Gage Avenue in this 1944 image. Note the “Fresh Fruit” stand that catered to on- and off-boarding passengers (“Candy & Soda” along with Philip Morris cigarettes and Coca-Cola) – built in the front yeard of the house just behind it — plus the bench advertising Eastern Columbia (“Broadway at Ninth,” “Home Furnishings, Since 1892, Smart Apparel”).
The carbody advertisement positions are occupied by World War II propaganda posters, including one reading:
Let’s See Everything / Do Everything
But Say Nothing
