This December marks the 100th Anniversary month of the San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni) with a number of events scheduled to celebrate the first publicly-owned transit system in a major U.S. city. Muni was founded on December 28, 1912, with Car #1 (pictured above at far left), which was recently restored to its former glory and is now rejoining the historic F-Line streetcars — a rolling museum on the streets of San Francisco!
As part of the Centennial celebrations, Tim Baskerville and Kevin Sheridan have joined forces to share their lovingly created portraits of the streetcars of the F-Line, with invaluable support from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), the all-volunteer Market Street Railway (MSR); and Harvey Milk Photo Center, part of The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.
