If you’re interested in reading some well-written (and accurate!) San Francisco transit history and musing on some very important “might-have-beens,” check out two recent entries on the Transbay Blog. Eric, the blogger, is a sharp observer and smooth writer. For years now, we’ve had in our ‘future file’ for Inside Track (our quarterly printed newsletter) the proposed Muni subway system that went down to defeat on the 1937 ballot. Eric beat us to it.
He’s also written a comprehensive entry on the history of transit on Geary. Definitely worth a read. Reminds us that we should soon post our own story on the machinations around the last few years of streetcar service on Geary. We’ll do that in a few weeks as a complement to Eric’s.
