Muni Centennial Photo Show at SFPL Opens Tomorrow


Image: SFMTA Archives

Starting Friday and going through the next three months, you can go to the San Francisco Public Library and be treated to a treasure trove — SFMTA is exhibiting “historic photographs from the … vast historical archive chronicling Muni’s vibrant history dating back to the turn of the century.”

From the SFPL‘s site:

We San Franciscans have a love/hate relationship with our transit system. We don’t like late or crowded buses, but we love that they go everywhere, the historical streetcars are cool, and best of all, we own it! This exhibit celebrates Muni’s messy, glorious 100 year history in San Francisco. From the politics to the incredible street infrastructure to the moving vehicles in all their variety, Muni is integral to most of our lives. And don’t forget the people, both the operators and the riders, who make up the system. Muni, how do we love thee, let us count the ways!

Sounds familiar.

    Sounds like a wonderful exhibit! The picture above is of The Fillmore Hill Counterbalance line ( a cross between streetcar and cable car).
