A recent post referred to the dangers of streetcar crossings. These photos provide a view of the four tracks in question, which led into Los Angeles. The images are from an issue of Traction Heritage that has been listed on EBay. Bidding starts at $4.95.

Another issue of Traction Heritage listed on EBay includes a map of Pacific Electric Railway routes, c. 1909, shown above.  Bidding starts at $4.95.
