At the turn of the century, picture postcards were
the dominant form of image-based reminders for those who traveled.
Because photography had not yet become a low-cost, popular way of
capturing memories, postcard publishers filled the bill with thousands
of wonderful variations. And nowhere was this trend more apparent
than in Southern California, where picture postcards and the trolleys
that took tourists and residents throughout the Southland came to
define the California Dream to the world.
DESTINATIONS by Roger L. Titus and Jim Bunte features
hundreds of cards and related artifacts depicting life in Southern
California from the turn of the century to the 1950s — and
all defined by the tracks of the Pacific Electric and its predecessor
lines like the Los Angeles Pacific Railroad. At the heart of DESTINATIONS
is Henry E. Huntington and his massive Pacific Electric interurban
/ trolley empire. The book follows the development of the PE throughout
Southern California, how Huntington's real estate empire paralleled
the development of the PE and how postcard publishers helped promote
locations along the PE with beautiful, stylized representations
of the Southland.
Each page contains a Southern California city or attraction,
with major areas covered across multiple pages and illustrated with
numerous postcards. In addition, unique Pacific Electric artifacts
