Kevin Sheridan photo.
We’ve occasionally been featuring photos from our current Museums in Motion calendar as our “photo of the month”, but this month will be a little different. Our photo this month comes from June of our 2011 calendar, which has just been finalized and sent off for printing.
Kevin Sheridan captured this reflection of Los Angeles streetcar no. 1052 on the future E-line right-of-way on The Embarcadero near Howard Street, with the Bay Bridge in the background. When the additional streetcars now under renovation return to Muni and operating funding is identified, the E-Embarcadero line will make historic streetcars an everyday sight between the Ferry Building and the Ballpark.
Our annual calendar is an important fundraiser for our non-profit organization and an important thank you to our members, without whom Market Street Railway wouldn’t exist. I am especially proud of how well next year’s calendar turned out, so you can expect to hear–and see–much more soon. If you are a Merchant and interested in carrying the calendar in your store, please contact John Hogan at the San Francisco Railway Museum by calling 1 (415) 974-1948.
