Cussed and Discussed: 100 Years of the Municipal Railway in San Francisco

11/02/12 - 4/08/2013

Main Library

San Francisco History Center Exhibit Space - 6th Floor

100 Larkin St.

We San Franciscans have a love/hate relationship with our transit system. We don't like late or crowded buses, but we love that they go everywhere,  the historical streetcars are cool, and best of all, we own it! This exhibit celebrates Muni's messy, glorious 100 year history in San Francisco. From the politics to the incredible street infrastructure to the moving vehicles in all their variety, Muni is integral to most of our lives. And don't forget the people, both the operators and the riders, who make up the system. Muni, how do we love thee, let us count the ways! 

Don't forget to come to our November 7 program on the History of Muni, a lecture and slide show by author and transit historian Grant Ute.
