This weekend, March 5-6, the historic Old Mint at Fifth and Mission comes alive again with city history. Dozens of city history groups will assemble to celebrate San Francisco’s history. Market Street Railway will again be among them, as we have been in the past. (That’s us above at an earlier version of the event. The Old Mint is a great venue for this.)
SFGate.com has all the details here.
This year, the Mayor’s Office is running the event and it has opened up the opportunity for groups to sell more merchandise than in the past. And this year it’s FREE!
We’ll have an interesting selection of unique items, plus our displays. Come join us 11-5 on Saturday, 11-4 on Sunday!
My maternal grandfather, Francis C. Mallard, was a ‘Motoman’ on the Market St. Railroad in 1932. I have a booklet published by the M.S.R.R. it which he is recognized as the ‘Motorman Of The Month’!
