Vintage View: 1900s Sacramento Street

A view of Downtown Lodi’s Sacramento Street in the early 1900s looking north from near Oak Street. The Lodi Arch, built in 1907 over Pine Street, is visible past the wagons on the right. The bear on top of the arch is just visible and indicates the photo was taken after 1909, when the papier mâché decoration was placed there. The rails of the Central California Traction line ran down the middle of Sacramento Street. Passenger rail cars, powered by electricity from the overhead power lines, provided service to Downtown Lodi into the 1930s. These rails, first laid in 1907, are now being uncovered and removed in the street repaving project currently underway on Sacramento Street.
