San Francisco History Expo #6 - March 6, 2016
Today we attended the sixth annual San Francisco History Expo at the Old Mint. There was a very good crowd and more groups exhibiting.
Market Street Railway had a nice exhibit. It was so crowded, I didn't get to talk to anyone. Across the aisle was the SFMTA Photo Archive exhibit. I complimented the docent on their nice work.
The Bay Area Electric Railway Association had a table for the first time. I spoke to Grant Ute. The Swanton Pacific Railroad was there for the first time.
The Friends of the Cable Car Museum had an extensive exhibit. I got to talk Mike Phipps, Jose Godoy and Mike Holmgren. Here is a model of a model Geary Street Park and Ocean Railway grip and trailer train.
The Bernal Heights History group had a skeletal, actual-size model of an earthquake shack. The rooms with the neighborhood groups were the most crowded.
The Pacifica Historical Society was there, too.
