Downtown Saugus, 1920s
Saugus, California

Downtown Saugus: San Fernando (Bouquet Canyon) Road in the 1920s, before the Automobile Club of Southern California posted directional or speed-limit signs.

The Saugus Train Station is barely visible at extreme left; the Saugus Café, owned by Richard and Martin Wood, is left of center, and the Woods' auto garage is at center. Of note are the train tracks. Southern Pacific's Saugus spur line crosses the road at the center of the photo. The only warning to motorists is the tall, white, stationary sign which reads, "Railroad Crossing: Look Out For The Cars."
