These cars originally ran on the D, F and H-lines, but soon were seen on all Muni streetcar lines with the exception of the E-Union Street line.

Duplicating the original, this brass metal etched plate measures 6.25″ x 2″ x 0.0325″ and weighs one ounce. A handsome reminder of the early days of urban transit.
