Pacific Electric Hollywood car no. 735 rolls through (what else?) West Hollywood near Robertson Boulevard in this circa-1950 image. 735 is headed west and approaching Robertson, with Domenico’s Lucky Cafe on the north side of the street.

This was one of the cars that was never converted to a “5050”. It spent its last months on the PE working the Monrovia-Glendora Line, and then went to Argentina. As I recall, the Monrovia line always operated with a two-man crew, while the Pasadena Short Line, during its last year, had a single operator.
correction: In this image Hollywood car no.735 has already passed Robertson and is approaching Doheny Dr,the border of Beverly Hills Great picture! Would like to see some more early shots near the Sherman yards.
