Several blocks short of the
L-Taraval executes a turn to leave Taraval St. It then heads
46th Ave. to reach the final stop. This
photo is from some years ago, and shows a Boeing-Vertol car -- a
model no longer in service.
Until 1937 the line continued straight on Taraval for several
blocks until it reached its former terminal just short of the Pacific.
The extension three very long blocks to the south represents an instance of rare
route expansion during a time when lines and
entire systems were being abandoned coast to coast.
