Stockton Tunnel -- February 10, 2015

Municipal Railway of San Francisco By Martin Samuel Vilas

"Looking up Stockton St., from South Portal of Tunnel."  On 29-December-1914, the Stockton Street Tunnel and the San Francisco Municipal Railway's F-Stockton streetcar line were both inaugurated by Mayor Sunny Jim Rolph.  The tunnel and the streetcar line were meant to improve access to the Panama-Pacific International Exposition. 

Today Muni is excavating the Central Subway under this location to improve access to Chinatown.
