Merry Christmas from PERYHS

From the Jack Finn collection comes this original, blue-border Ektachrome slide that hasn’t totally faded: Pacific Electric Hollywood car no. 5114 eastbound on Hollywood Blvd. at Whitley Avenue, sometime between 1952 and 1953 (corrected).

Merry Christmas from all of us at the Pacific Electric Railway Historical Society.

      The date of this photo would be 1952 or 1953. The #5114 would go on to serve the WATTS line as LAMTA #1803 until 1960. She lasted to the end.

    I think the blue convertible in the background is a ’51 Oldsmobile.
