PCC Streetcar on Market St., San Francisco

PCC Streetcar on Market St., San Francisco

October 16, 2010, at the corner of Market St. and 5th St. in San Francisco.

Shortly after my arrival in San Francisco, I was walking from the train station to my hostel, taking lots of photos along the way (of course). This section of Market St. is the first somewhat "touristy" area I walked through and, not surprisingly, I got a kick out of the old streetcars they have in service here.

This PCC streetcar is painted in 1938 Philadelphia colours. They apparently have a TTC-coloured streetcar too, and I was watching out for it, but unfortunately never saw it. I was hoping to caption a photo with "TTC PCC in SF CA" (yeah, I'm a geek).
