A Terrific New Book from Signature Press! Union Pacific in the Los Angeles Basin, Jeff S. Asay


Union Pacific was a latecomer to Southern California, not arriving until 1901, when E.H. Harriman and W.A. Clark agreed to share ownership of the San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad. But the history of this part of the UP is complex. It is all here, from the pre- decessor railroads, through Depression, war, and many postwar changes and adjustments, including many complications at the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. Also fascinating are the relations with Santa Fe, Pacific Electric and Southern Pacific. Tis book will be of great interest to UP fans and those interested in Southern California history.
