Click main image above to enlarge.

Rare original “Venice Short Line” trolley sign. So-named because it was the most direct route to Venice. The Venice Short Line connected downtown Los Angeles to Venice, Ocean Park, and Santa Monica via Venice Boulevard. This type of sign hung on the front of trolleys from the 1930s until the line closed in 1950. Heavy gauge steel weighs over 6lbs. Original paint. Fantastic untouched patina. Recently discovered in a shed in Venice. Not too many of these around anymore. A fantastic piece of early Southern California trolley memorabilia. Last image shows a similar sign in use.

 

Date: 1930’s.

 

Size: 24″  x  15″.

 

Condition: Weathered surfaces with expected aging and paint loss. A few dents. Please use photos and description to determine condition.
