Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
This depot was constructed around 1915 and operated until 1947. A year later, local high school students assisted contractors in transforming the structure into a youth center. The center had an indoor and outdoor dance floor, a snack bar/soda fountain in the former ticket seller's booth, ping-pong tables and recreational equipment; the structure has since been demolished.
Looking across Badillo Street in Covina towards the depot which serves the Upland-San Bernardino Line of the Pacific Electric Railway Company.
