Interior of a Los Angeles Railway streetcar (L Class), circa 1927

Interior of a Los Angeles Railway streetcar (L Class), circa 1927Photographs of Los Angeles streetcars abound on the internet, but rarely do I see what they looked like on the inside. This is a Los Angeles Railway streetcar from circa 1927. The seats aren’t arranged as I expected. I’ve always imagined them laid out like on a bus. I notice the pairs of seats have a little handle so now I’m wondering if they were the ones you could swap direction. Also, the signs say “Exit at front” – I’d have though the standard procedure would have been to enter at front and exit at rear. (This is a Los Angeles Railway (LARy) street car, sometimes referred to as the other street cars. Red Cars belonged to the Pacific Electric (PE))
