Description
March 1, 1903 marked the beginning of service by the Pacific Electric Railway to Monrovia and this is the first car. In 1907 service was extended to Duarte, Azusa & Glendora and the completion of the PE Depot in Monrovia. At first, as shown here, there was only a single track, doubletrack came later. The track crossing the PE tract as shown here was that of the Myrtle Ave Street Railway, the 'horse car' line of the early days.
