Photograph of the powerhouse and main offices of the L.A. Traction Company building on the southwest corner of Twelfth and Georgia Bell Streets, 1897. A group of thirty men in uniforms of what appear to be peacoats and kepi hats can be seen standing in front of the arched windows of the Traction Company building. Identifiable men include: Al Clifford, Captain of the Police Department, and Y.C. Knapp, the moustached man pictured in the back row. The brick building has tall, thin arched windows. A sign reading, "Los Angeles [...]ction Company" is visible above the entrance. Beyond the building, telephone poles recede into the background at the extreme left along a picket fence.
