Improving San Francisco Market Street Railway Lapel Pin

Improving MSR Lapel Pin

The Market Street Railway Company thrived in an age when rails ruled San Francisco. Spanning the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, and the boom times of World War II, it had a long and legendary lifetime that is deeply ingrained in the City's history. "Improving San Francisco" signs were placed around construction sites whenever rail work was in progress. This lapel pin is an exact replica of one of these signs.

Conductor Lapel Pin

Conductor Lapel Pin

Conductors were (and still are today) an integral part to the operations of streetcars. Even some famous figures, such as Dr. Maya Angelou, began their working careers are streetcar conductors. Conductors were responsible for operational and safety duties that do not involve actual operation of the streetcar, such as taking your fare and punching your ticket. The conductor title is most common in North American railway operations.

Engineer Lapel Pin

Engineer Lapel Pin

Many streetcars operated during the early part of the 20th Century were designed for operation by a crew of two or more. The Engineer was responsible for the operation and maintenance of the streetcar. This position was also called a "Motorman", and later "Motorettes" performed the same duties.

Motorman Lapel Pin

Motorman Lapel Pin

Motorman is the designation for the operator or a streetcar. Unlike "Engineer" which may refer to the driver of a train, subway, or streetcar, "Motorman" was used exclusively to refer to the operator of a streetcar or trolley. During World War II, many women joined the workforce taking over the duties of the Motormen. They received the designation of "Motorette".
