2014 San Francisco History Expo -- March 2, 2014

Today we attended the fourth annual San Francisco History Expo at the Old Mint. There was a good crowd. There were some new exhibitors this year, including the Odd Fellows.  Here is a photo of people lined up, waiting to get in when the expo opened at 11am. 

The Friends of the Cable Car Museum were kind enough to share some of their space with the group restoring Ocean Shore Railroad car 1409.  Here are Paul Slavin and Scott Lindner, who is leading the restoration. 

The Friends of the Cable Car Museum were in a new position, as were many other groups.  I had a nice chat with Mike Phipps and Dom Holmgren, who will talk on Sunday about the Ocean Shore Railroad.  The Friends' web site has been down for over a week, but they are working on it.  Jose Godoy of the Friends designed the button especially for the Expo. 

The Market Street Railway/San Francisco Railway Museum had a nice table.  I had a good chat with young volunteers Dominic and Julian. 

They had an additional room open at the north end.
