Al was a motorman for LATL,
and often operated our charter cars. He later became a dreaded supervisor,
and ultimately rose to a position in the main office of LATL/LAMTA.
He was dearly loved by all of us. He was a character. Once, on Spring
St. in downtown, a LOL boarded and asked him if it was a 7 car. He
carefully helped her down the steps, looked at the roof sign with her,
read the dash sign with her, and concluded, "Yes, ma'am, I believe it is."
Lazear Israel was riding with me at the time.
