5028 in Atwater

Pacific Electric PCC no. 5028 glides in the Atwater district on June 10, 1955, in this classic Alan K. Weeks photo. The PCC is unhampered by auto traffic.

Just days later, the line would be abandoned, and buses would be mired in auto traffic below this line’s former right of way.

    The photo looks like it was taken from where the 76 gas station is now…

    As a lifelong Atwater resident, I can confirm that this photo was taken from the location of the old Beaches Market. Great historical document capturing a forgotten history of Atwater
