Quotes:
Until after the second war, South Pasadena was bounded by hills and orange groves and the tracks of the Pacific Electric. ...The world's finest interurban electrical railway system was replaced by the world's greatest gasoline-fired, smog-producing transportation system. The hills where the coyote cried are now peopled.
