Trolley riders, as on this Los Angeles Railway line, had to wait in the street to board the car. Painted areas, sometimes with reflectors, warning lights and/or rubber signs near the ground were intended to guide vehicles away from the pedestrians.

In the background at the center right is a sign showing that Artie Shaw and his orchestra were playing “nitely.”
