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.
