Weekend Photos: Gone in Eight Seconds


Photo by Bob at All City

This photo of the N-Judah, eight seconds into the Powell station tunnel, is by Bob of the website All City. Actually, this photography collective isn’t quite new: All City is the new web digs for the photography crew formerly known as Caliber. So check them out for more excellent city photography.

This week on Muni Time Capsule, we bring you a photo by milantram showing the 41-Union and 12-Ocean Avenue kicking it at … 26th and Mission? Read the post to see how the 41 and 12 ended up in what would soon to be hipster-central.
