Red Car Trolleys on Allesandro Street

All October, in anticipation of the EIR for the 2 Freeway Terminus Project, we're reviewing the neighborhood history through neighbors' photographs.
The Whitmore Stop in the photo above, was shot from the rooftop of the Holyland Exhibition at the corner of Lake View Ave. and Allesandro Way. It was the terminus of the local Edendale Line. The larger interurban trolleys were on the Glendale Line, which proceeded north, past the Holyland Exhibition and through the private right-of-way now known as the Corralitas Red Car Property.
