Biographical Note

The Los Angeles Railway Corporation (LARy) was the product of mergers and consolidations of numerous local and interurban railways in Los Angeles and adjacent communities. In 1910, Henry E. Huntington yielded his interests in the Pacific Electric Company to the Southern Pacific Railroad Company, which subsequently controlled the interurban lines, and he incorporated the Los Angeles Railway Company and other railway interests to form the Los Angeles Railway Corporation, which operated the Los Angeles city lines.
This collection was compiled by Edwin L. Lewis, who began working for the Los Angeles Cable Railway Company in 1888. Lewis became vice-president and manager of the Los Angeles Land Company and manager of the Los Angeles Railway Building in 1921. He retired in 1939. Lewis collected the material as background information for his proposed book on the railway systems of Los Angeles. The two volume history was never published, but exists in manuscript form and is housed in the Huntington's Manuscript Department.

Scope and Contents

The collection consists of 1164 black and white photographs, 97 glass negatives, clippings, correspondence, manuscripts, notes, a card file, and a ledger book related to the Los Angeles Railway, 1851-1939, collected and created by Edwin L. Lewis. The collection provides a broad pictorial overview of the development of the railway systems in Los Angeles in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as well as information on the physical development of the city itself.
The photographs and related clippings and correspondence depict and describe views of Los Angeles, primarily downtown, but also some of the neighborhoods that grew as a result of the construction of the street car system; methods and modes of transportation and transportation-related subjects, primarily with regard to the Los Angeles Railway; and individuals, including employees of the Railway and of the Los Angeles business community, and individuals who were in some way connected with the development of the railroad in Southern California. The collection is particularly strong in city scenes and panoramic views, primarily of downtown Los Angeles. These include “then and now” comparisons of various Los Angeles neighborhoods; business districts; hotels; city halls; school buildings; commercial and industrial buildings; post office buildings; churches; hospitals; holiday celebrations; and outlying areas (such as Catalina Island and San Diego). The transportation images include, but are not limited to, views of the railway; railway, street and cable cars; stations and station locations; and maps of rail lines. Also included are images of bicycles, carriages, and automobiles.
The material related to individuals consists of biographical files and includes biographical sketches, notes on interviews conducted by Lewis, and/or correspondence, and describes LARy and other railroad employees, individuals who worked in industries connected with transportation, and business leaders in Southern California. The interviews are essentially oral histories, and provide a great deal of information on the development of both the railways in Los Angeles and the development of the city itself. The photographs included in the biographical files are portraits.
The majority of the photographs are annotated on the reverse with location information, a short description, and/or identification of individuals. Some images include annotations on the front. Many of the photographs have clippings taped to the reverse. Some of the photographs exist in duplicate form; however, many of the duplicates are annotated with information not found on the original copy. Some photographs are missing.

Arrangement

The original arrangement of the collection is numerical (see Container List below), based on Lewis's numbering scheme. Each photograph is inscribed with a number that corresponds to the numbers in Lewis’s original ledger (located in box 21). The collection remains in numerical order, and is described at the folder level. Lewis also created a card file (box 27) arranged by subject, which was used to describe and access specific photographs. Item-level access is available through this card file in consultation with the Curator of Photographs. Every attempt has been made to be as inclusive as possible in the description of the folder contents; however, some folders contain images that span two or more subjects.
In addition to photographs, each folder may contain correspondence, clippings and/or notes, and their presence is noted. The biographical files contain primarily textual materials; if photographs are present, they are noted.
The collection has also been intellectually described in four broad subject areas at the end of the Container List: Views of Los Angeles and vicinity; Transportation; Individuals; and Miscellaneous. Within the Views of Los Angeles, Transportation, and Miscellaneous subject areas, the arrangement is numerical. The individuals are listed alphabetically.
The majority of the clippings and printed materials included with the photographs are preservation photocopies.
