It's hard to believe the Allesandro Cut was such a narrow passage for the Pacific Electric Red Car Trolleys when compared to the 2 Freeway today. It looks like this is shot where the Oak Glen overpass is today, facing north. The Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract is the unbuilt hillside in the background on the right.

Red Car Historian Paul Ayers, who shared some of his family archive with us, will present a free program, open to the public, featuring hundreds of slides of the Pacific Electric Glendale Line from Downtown Los Angeles to Glendale Thursday, May 12, 2011 for the Glendale Historical Society.
