Designer makes 38L-Geary poster with road section and landmarks

Lucia is a graphic designer. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that she digs San Francisco and its hills and public transportation. Just a wild hunch.

“I’m a graphic designer new to San Francisco (Outer Richmond). Just wanted to share a recent project I created. A poster showing the topography and landmarks for Muni 38L route.”

BART map from ye not-too-distant dayes

Funny how the recent past can look so dang old. Full-size image here.

BART rider Charles sent this relic. Here’s what he had to say:

This is a severely beaten BART map found at Powell, circa late ’90s-early 2000s, as it still shows extensions to Baypoint and Dublin still under construction. I spotted this not too long ago, though I think the only reason that it was around was that they seemed to be changing all the advertisements in the station that night. I’m not entirely sure on that though, so it may still be up there. I wonder whether any French tourists got confused.

Easy answer: Yes, tourists are confused. Hella.

This reminds me of how, every time we’re at Powell, Tara looks for the super-secret door that used to lead up to Woolworth’s.
