Pacific Electric Railway Historical Society Monograph, No 2
Stock #: KB11243
Author: John L. Whitmeyer
Publisher: Golden West Books
The Pacific Electric Railway Historical Society, in association with Golden West Books, is pleased to announce the first reissue publication of Monograph No. 2, John L. “Jack” Whitmeyer’s “Remembrances of the Pacific Electric Railway.”
This completely revamped volume continues on the pioneering work by late PERHYS founder Jack Finn, who studiously and meticulously interviewed dozens of Pacific Electric employees, railfans, photographers, historians and more before his death in July of 2006. Jack interviewed Jack Whitmeyer in 1998 and compiled a great collection of images and hand-drawn maps by to publish the original volume.
We have augmented the original work with more than 100 images, many drawn exclusively from the legendary Craig Rasmussen Collection – and Craig served as the image supervisor on this reissue. This volume focuses on Jack’s early years in the Eastern District, growing up in Riverside-Arlington, and his experiences before and after the war with the Pacific Electric, including a chapter on RPO service between Los Angeles and San Bernardino. “Remembrances of the Pacific Electric” by Jack Whitmeyer is a must-have addition to any important Pacific Electric Library. Soft cover.
