Join Market Street Railway as we dive into SFMTA’s fabulous photographic archives in the fourth installment of Inside Track–Live! Jeremy Menzies and Katy Guyon will guide us in an insider’s-view of SFMTA’s archival preservation department.
When Muni took over our namesake, Market Street Railway, they got their photographic collection as well as the streetcars and car barns. Many of these photos came from their predecessor, United Railroads, taken by their staff photographer, John Henry Mentz, onto glass plates, with exceptional resolution.
Besides seeing some great photographs from the Archives, Muni’s team will share tips on figuring out that elusive spot to perfectly frame cable cars cresting a hill? They’ll show you how to access Muni’s vast photographic archives on your own, and they’ll answer your questions.
