The King of Transportation

The King of Transportation

Since the beginning of history, the human race has depended on animals — horses, mules, camels and oxen — for long distance transportation across land.  Such was the case in Southern California. Los Angeles and other settlements along El Camino Real were accessible only by horseback and stagecoach. That would begin to change with the efforts of a person who would become known as the “King of Transportation,” Phineas T.  Banning.
