March 13, 2017: Since I started Gem City Images way back in 2007, the photos posted here have been (almost) exclusively of Monrovia. All my other photos have been posted to various social media sites like Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.

While that seemed like a good idea, in reality it led to a lack of consistency that was frustrating for me and made it hard to follow along with the latest photos.

So, starting now, Gem City Images will no longer be exclusively Monrovia. If you still want to see Monrovia only, you can always click the "Monrovia" label on the right side but hopefully you'll follow along for the whole experience.

Even though Gem City Images refers to Monrovia, I decided to keep that as the blog name. No matter where I go, The Gem City is where it all started.

Monrovia Grand Opening Celebration Of The Gold Line Extension March 5, 2016


A long line of people waiting to ride the train on the first day.




A good turnout at Station Square / Gold Line Station.  The line of people on the right side are waiting to ride the train.  Info booths on the left side and live music way down around the corner at the amphitheater in the park.
The VIP train is just passing the old Santa Fe Depot on its way into the Monrovia station.
The balloons to the right are where the ribbon cutting will be held.



The first non-VIP passenger train at the Monrovia station.



Monrovia Mayor Tom Adams interviewed by Ralph Walker. 



The band Person To Person provides the live music in the amphitheater. 



2 trains passing just west of the Monrovia station.
