From the archives: Pass perfect

Los Angeles Railway weekly passes from the 1930s.

Thousands of visual reminders of history are stored on the Metro Library Flickr site. Tucked among the historic photos is a shot of a few weekly passes from the 1930s, showing that many Los Angeles Railway tickets were small works of art. Some simply reminded riders not to forget Mother’s Day. Others promoted attractions or events around town. Cost of the weekly pass 70 years ago was $1 vs. $17 today.
