Description
A group of material related to the Los Angeles Railway Corporation.
Background
The Los Angeles Railway Corporation, formed in 1910, was the final result of various mergers and consolidations of the numerous local and interurban railways which developed in Los Angeles and adjacent communities. In that year Henry E. Huntington yielded his interests in the Pacific Electric Company to the Southern Pacific Railroad Company, which subsequently controlled the interurban lines while Huntington incorporated the Los Angeles Railway Corporation, which then operated the Los Angeles city lines. This material was collected by Edwin L. Lewis, who had begun working for the Los Angeles Cable Railway Company in 1888, and eventually became the manager of the Los Angeles Railway Building in 1921.
Extent
7 Linear Feet (4 boxes, 11 volumes, 5 oversize folders)
