El Camino Real & The Route of Daylight
Wednesday, April 2
Members are complimentary/ Guests $10
Reservations are required. Limited parking
Based on the new book by the Los Angeles Railroad Foundation. From the treks of the padres who established the missions of California, El Camino Real the King's Highway became the dramatic story of the Golden State. The birth of the automobile era in the early twentieth century and the construction of Highway 101 so near to the twenty-one missions enhanced that story. Adding drama in the 1930s was the introduction of the Southern Pacific's celebrated Daylight passenger trains along the same route.
Discover the relationship of the missions, the coastal highway, and the railroad paralleling them. Historian Tom Zimmerman will bring that story to life, enriched by beautiful vintage and modern images.
