Yesterday’s Thoughts

April 12, 2010

Visiting the San Francisco of 1850.

Chris Carlsson has a lovely post on SF Streets Blog called Walking Through the San. It is the first of what promises to be a series on the history of San Francisco Transit History.

I was very moved to contemplate the San Francisco Peninsula in the earliest days of European occupation and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.

Update: You can join Chris Carlsson on a bicycle tour of San Francisco on April 24, from Noon to 4 pm.

Discover lost freeways, ghosts of train routes, and a vivid account of how San Franciscans moved around this peninsula through time. Hear about the violent strikes that shaped public transit, the graft and corruption that conquered the Outside Lands. It’s a social, historical and critical 4-hour tour through the city’s transportation past and present.

Details here.
