Off my trolley – Pacific Electric at its best

Browsing (as one does) I came across a New York Subway site with this excellent picture of a Pacific Electric PCC car at an unknown, but very modellable location.  (OK, New York site, PE picture, does not compute…..  but it’s still a great photograph).

The spindly palms and the large white houses would make a good backdrop to an interurban or trolley line.
