They were still using these ticket windows in the late 1970s, when I was traveling frequently between L.A. and San Diego. The place was sure different back then, what with the concourse usually being nearly empty. Out on the tracks there was usually just the San Diegan I was arriving or departing on, at least when I was there.
Nice photo! Beautiful! I love seeing this room in commericials, my favorite being the Mercedes Santa Christmas commerical.
