Southern California attained its modern configuration during the first half of the twentieth century. Its development was influenced by a few good men, like Henry E. Huntington, who saw the possibilities for a great community. His Pacific Electric Railway played a major role in this development. One can only imagine his purpose of extending the PE into wide open spaces where there was near nothing. Was it to take people to his real estate developments? Or was he providing arteries of transportation? No one knows what his overall plan was, but he did provide us with some fine real estate developments, industrial sites, and an excellent transportation system.

Pacific Electric Railway Volume 1: Northern District by Donald Duke covers a wide variety of subjects and lines, including Henry E. Huntington – The Builder, South Pasadena, Pasadena Short Line, New Year’s Day in Pasadena, Pasadena Locals, Alhambra-San Gabriel-Temple City, Mount Lowe, Monrovia-Glendora, Sierra Madre, Pasadena Oak Knoll, Sierra Vista, and Box Motors.

88 pages, more than 170 photos and maps, featuring Alhambra-San Gabriel-Temple City Line, Monrovia-Glendora Line, Mount Lowe Line, Pasadena Local Lines, Pasadena Oak Knoll Line, Pasadena Short Line, Sierra Madre Line, Sierra Vista Line, and the South Pasadena Line.
