Pacific Electric Restaurant Employee Badge #57

From the collection of Keith Ricks comes this unbelievably rare Pacific Electric Restaurant Employee badge, numbered 57, and featuring the description “Restaurant & News Service.”

As Keith notes, PE maintained numerous food service facilities at key locations on the system, including 6th and Main (headquarters), Long Beach, Pasadena, and Subway Terminal, as seen here:

    When 6th & Main opened, there was a restaurant called the PE Grill. Was this a replacement of that service or what? Is the known Pacific Electric china (thought linked to Alpine Tavern) also related to these services?
