Muni Video: 1980 Rollsign
Octoferret‘s is my favorite Flickr account lately. His photoset of outdated and inaccurate Muni signage was featured here on Muni Diaries last week. And last weekend, while searching Flickr for a photo to embed with another post, I stumbled across the video above. The best part — Octoferret claims to own these Muni relics. Talk about Geek Envy!
I might be a bigger Muni buff than the average Muni Diaries reader. But perhaps you, too, can find a nostalgic, quiet beauty in the video. Either way, enjoy. Parts 2 and 3 are after the jump.
Do you remember any of these extinct lines? Share those memories in the comments. Also, don’t forget we’re about to experience some Muni route deaths of our own in October. If you’d like to write an obituary for a loved bus line, let us know. Deadline is Sept. 30. firstname.lastname@example.org
I kinda liked the 8 Market. Also, I am saddened that the 26 is going away, as I just moved 100 feet from a stop. I also generally lament the passing of the trolly buses as they were from my school days in the early 90s.
We so need one of these in our house.
or, if there was a Muni Diaries HQ, just above the door.
