The Pacific Electric Railway Company, established by Henry Huntington, connected cities across the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The records in this collection consist of information about rules and regulations governing employees, timetables and vehicle information, financial, operation, and service reports, as well as contracts and agreements made during the sale of Pacific Electric Railway Company property and stock to Metropolitan Coach Lines.
Pacific Electric Railway (PERy) was created in 1901 with Henry Edwards Huntington as principal stockholder. Huntington completed the first PE line in 1902 which ran from Los Angeles to Long Beach. He later sold his shares to Southern Pacific in 1910.
