This may be our best calendar yet. Great images from great photographers who willingly share their talent to celebrate San Francisco’s historic streetcars and cable cars, and, importantly to us, help us raise funds to advocate for these “Museums in Motion” and help keep them looking great.
Thanks to this year’s photographers: Traci Cox, Adolfo Echeverry, Peter Ehrlich, Matt Lee, Kevin Mueller, Bernard Spragg, Jeremy Whiteman, and Wayne Worden.
Bonus: a photo history of the L-Taraval, celebrating its centennial in 2019.
It’s now available for $12.95 at our San Francisco Railway Museum, and in our Online Store. And those of you ordering online, we’ve managed to significantly reduce the shipping cost this year. Don’t wait; these will sell out.
Oh, and you prospective photographers for future calendars, we’re accepting submittals for our 2020 calendar already on our Flickr Group. Follow the instructions there in the first message on the page; photos we don’t end up using in 2020 will automatically be considered for inclusion in future calendars as long as they meet the technical requirements.
The new year marks the centennial of the J-Church, San Francisco’s oldest surviving streetcar line, and our calendar brings its history to life with a full page of text and photos about the wonderful, wandering J and its backyard right-of-way.
But that’s just the icing on the cake, because the real star of the calendar is 13 great full color photos of vintage streetcars and cable cars in action on the streets of San Francisco.
We’ve limited our print run of the calendar this year, so don’t wait to get yours!
