Destinations: How Trolleys and Postcards Helped Create the Southern California Dream, 1898-1950s by Roger L Titus, Jum Bunte

Travel back in time to a Southern California that was still wide-open space, where everything and everyone was interconnected by the trolleys of the Pacific Electric Railway. Learn how trolleys and postcard publishers helped real estate developers transform Southern California from a sleepy, agricultural backwater into a bustling metropolis of the 21st century. DESTINATIONS is an entertaining journey through the Southland's colorful history, illustrated in full color with hundreds of vintage postcards and rare Pacific Electric Railway memorabilia. The trolleys of the Pacific Electric may be gone, but their influence continues to this very day.
