The Huntington Era in the life of the electric railway industry in Los Angeles was so long and so overpowering that it is difficult for the traction historian to envision a time when the famous Huntington "Standard" streetcar was not the foundation of Angel City car types. From 1902 to 1954 theHuntington Standard was a vital part of the life of the community and was familiar around the world due to the many motion picture scenes in which it appeared; even today this streetcar is recognizable through television revivals of the Hollywood comedies of those early days.
But there was a time-from 1890 to 1902---when Angelenos did not have Huntington Standards to transport them about the city. Instead, there was a great variety of car types--some cumbersome, some quite attractive, and some downright ugly. It is into this dimly perceived never-never land that we delve in this, our Special 33. From dusty records preserved in the Magna Collection over the years and from old newspaper and magazine accounts (which leave considerable room for speculation) we have attempted to form a cohesive, intelligent whole. Such errors as are contained herein are perhaps inevitable in the absence of official records of that long ago time.
At any rate, here they are---those wonderful, forgotten old cars of long gone days. One thing for sure: they gave a new way of life to the City of Angels and enabled it to start its lusty growth which eventually, it now appears, will make it the nation's largest metropolis.
