Here’s the street car that ran me out to the downtown office this morning (from Fisherman’s Wharf). I see that I stated incorrectly in a previous blog post that these street cars were made in Italy : they were not. These models were designed by Cleveland street railway commissioner Peter Witt, and built in the USA in the late 1920s. The street cars were then exported to world cities such as Toronto, Mexico City, Madrid, and three Italian cities, Naples, Turin, and Milan. Ten of these street cars were then bought many decades later by the City of San Francisco in 1998.
