Los Angeles Railway
3149 on Route P at 1st Street
This car is actually on,
not at, 1st Street. It is passing though an area which had, prior
to 1942, been home to a large number of American citizens who had the misfortune
of having had Japanese ancestors, and thus who, in the most unconstitutional
but unfortunately not un-American fashion, had their civil rights
and property stripped from them and were deported to concentration camps.
The P-3s, most modern cars on the system, hardly repaid the shameful treatment
that they received at the hands of their own government.
