A group of material related to the Los
Angeles Railway Corporation.
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.
