    This picture looks to have been taken at the Pacific Electric maintenance yard in Venice.

    This one of a very few wood cars on the P.E. that had ornate window sash all along the side. Most had an admixture of specially crafted windows in the closed section and plain square generic sash in the formerly open section. I don’t recall any wood interurban cars had symmetrical widows after being rebuilt and modernized – whereas the Huntington Standards always had the symmetry line right smack dab down the middle of the car no matter what!

      They had beautiful inlaid mahogany panels inside. They are still there on car 993 at Orange Empire Railway Museum, awaiting restoration. I donated a panel I rescued from another 950 at a scrapyard.
