Powell Street Promenade #2 -- August 7, 2011

The Powell Street Promenade is part of the city's program of introducing neighborhood parklets. On street corners along Powell from Ellis to Geary, there are aluminum platforms with planters and railings. Yesterday I stood on the one on the west side of Powell near Geary with my new camera and took some photos. It was a good spot. Here we see car 25, built in 1890 and recently rebuilt, inbound on the Powell/Hyde line. It wears the red pre-1906 Powell Street paint scheme.

Before that, we had lunch at Lefty O'Doul's. I had corned beef on a sourdough roll. Very good.
