Travel Town, an outdoor museum in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, was dedicated in 1952. The Southern Pacific Company, was willing to donate an obsolete locomotive to be the first train on exhibit. The Los Angeles City Recreation and Park Department's museum is visited each week by hundreds of youngsters and adults who are interested in the development of transportation. The focus of the museum is rail transportation, but other items are on display.
Photograph caption dated November 12, 1963 reads "These youngsters from the Village Christian School, Sun Valley, climb up, down, in and out of the trains during a visit to Griffith Park."; See images #00121195 through #00121197 for all photos in this series.
