Broadway Wharf -- November 26, 2013

This plaque at Drumm and Broadway marks the site of the Broadway Wharf, where Pony Express mail arrived in San Francisco.  I don't know why "River Steamers" is in quotes.  The ferry Oakland did not carry Pony Express mail.  The steamer Chrysopolis did carry Pony Express mail.  In later years, it was rebuilt into the Southern Pacific ferry Oakland.  The Oakland survived until 1940.
