Pier Ave. 1924 Mural  
  This view of the lower, right corner of the mural shows businesses, cars and trucks, strollers on the sidewalk, and a Pacific Electric Red Car trolley. The trolley lines ran from downtown Los Angeles toward the beach, and this line ran through Playa del Rey, along near the beach in Hermosa Beach on its way to Redondo Beach further south. In this way city residents could easily travel to the beach and in the summer time could escape the heat and enjoy the beach atmosphere for a day, or longer if they desired.
