Nice 1931 map of the Market Street Railway streetcar system via Eric Fischer. Click for city-wide map.

(Note the brand new Seals Baseball Stadium.  Oh I would love me some good E-W light rail like that 22, with dedicated right of way… And something along CC while we’re at it.)

And Telstar Logistics brings us this 1947 sales brochure for new streetcars. Note this was right before SF tore out its system and replaced most of it with buses.

TL also brings us this Sirron Norris painting of SF transit.

Hmm, I am not sure if there is some sort of Muni reliability message here. Are these floating or flying?

(Note that Sirron Norris is now based in increasingly awesome La Lengua.)

    It looks like those vehicles are driving too fast on the Bay Bridge S-curve!

    I always thought Folsom seemed streetcar-worthy. I’d gladly give up two lanes of traffic in exchange for streetcar lines.
