Travel to U.S.: West: A Boy's San Francisco: 2: Photo 8
All these places were west of Twin Peaks and the tunnel under them. The boy often rode his bicycle downdown over a circuitous route--Alemany by name--but more often took the streetcar. The streetcars of that vintage had an enclosed middle part but open ends, and the boy invariably rushed up front to stand next to the motorman, who clanged the bell with a mechanical floor button. The motormen each carried a wrench-like crank with which they controlled the motors and which was as inseparably attached to each motorman as a stethoscope is to a doctor. All the steelwork here is new; the boy simply saw a concrete arch with the date 1917.
