60 years since Pacific Electric's Santa Ana line

Today marks the 60th anniversary of the last day of Pacific Electric Railway ("Red Car") service in Santa Ana. The last day, depicted in the photos here, was July 2, 1950. The line originally opened in 1905.
Speaking of Santa Ana, the Orange County Archives and the Old Courthouse Museum will both be open tomorrow, Sat., July 3rd, 1-5pm. Both are generally open on weekdays (except holidays, like Monday), but are seldom open on weekends. Stop by, say hello, and do a little research.
