Just for Fun: Vintage Culver City Footage in Rail Training Film


Via our friends at Culver City Living, comes this 97-year-old training film for Pacific Electric rail car conductors.  The eight minute video isn't just a fun piece of transit history, it also provides some old views of Culver City.

The sequence from 1:00 to 1:35 was filmed at the corner of Venice and Sepulveda. Look all those trees!

And here I thought the most interesting part of that intersection was that it was home to a Kwik-E-Mart.
