Thazer Posted September 11, 2016 Share Posted September 11, 2016 WHoa... what a weird name for a league. Whatssup here? A. There was an actual Southern California Trolley League. .... that lasted like 22 minutes in 1910. The name initially made me think the league was affiliated with a rail system; It wasnt, but i was intrigued.... so i will make it so. B. The Pacific Electric Co. would have done this. Profits came from the owners routing rail lines through their land holdings to facilitate their development. Passenger service alone never made a profit. Creating a sports league to provide attractions along PE routes would encourage development and fill the red cars on match days. C. Some of ye might remember this wackadoodle topic of mine. I got bored. The concepts and presentation were pretty weaksauce too. _____________________________________________________________________ Pacific Electric Football League Weeeeee!! League setup in the inaugural year 1910. Football clubs dot the PE routes.
