Port of San Francisco 150 -- April 29, 2013

On 24-April-2013, the Port of San Francisco celebrated its 150th anniversary, the anniversary of Governor Leland Stanford signing legislation to create the Board of State Harbor Commissioners.  The state operated the port until 1969.

A celebration Sunday included the fireboat Guardian.  On 20-February-2013, I took a photo of Guardian as she nudged up to the wharf behind the Ferry Building. A fireman stood at the bow and handed out plastic fire helmets to a class of pre-schoolers. That was pretty cool.
