Redondo Beach End of The Line
The south end of Catalina Avenue at Avenue I in Redondo Beach marked the end of the tracks for the PE Del Rey Line, when this area was called Clifton or Clifton by the Sea. This is also the north end of what is today known as the Hollywood Riviera with great shops and eateries. PE 890 has just arrived and is being switched to head back north to Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo and Play Del Rey and the trolley pole is yet to be changed over. The dash sign has all these destinations listed and on the top line it reads, “Local to Vineyard.” Llewellyns Cafe can be seen in the background to the left of the car.

I think the cafe is at 1501 South Catalina, it’s now a dentist office. The Building is still there, the roof and red tiles looks the same but the doors and windows have been changed.
