“San Fran Caravan”

Great snapshot of a Cable Car in early 1960’s San Francisco, CA! Looks to have been a rainy day, as men are wearing rain jackets and women plastic head scarfs. Lots of signage on trolley, including Powell & Mason Sts., Fare 15 cents, Municipal Railway of San Francisco, George Mardikian’s Omar Khayyam’s Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge (opened in 1938), Powell and Market – Fisherman’s Wharf 3 Blocks from Terminal – Bay and Taylor, 505 and Pepsi-Cola. The Powell Mason cable car line began service in 1888. Neat photo!
