Ferry Garden City RIP -- June 8, 2022

Oakland Tribune, 07-June-1922

Ferry Garden City was built in 1879 for the narrow gauge South Pacific Coast Railroad. After Southern Pacific consumed the South Pacific Coast, Garden City continued to run regularly between San Francisco and the Alameda Mole until 1922. She returned from retirement several times before finally being written off in 1929. Bits and pieces of Garden City are visible at times in the Carquinez Strait.
