"With virtually no auto grade crossings in 1910, the streetcars made incredible time," Lesser wrote. "The line between LA and Long Beach was first established in 1902. I have the stats for 1911: 36 minutes on limiteds (express); 1913: 42 minutes; 1926: 51 minutes; 1944: 54 minutes; 1954: 60 minutes.
