San Francisco City Guides - These are THE BEST walking tours of San Francisco. These walks, put on by volunteers with the San Francisco Library, are fascinating and often take you into areas not normally open to the public. They are free, though donations to the Library are taken.
At Perish Trust, vintage finds are elevated to museum-like status even if they don't have a pedigree. Here, you might find moody tableaux such as an old paper cutter atop a large spool or a microscope next to field guides. Photo: Kelly Ishikawa/Rod Hipskind Styl
Sutro Railroad in 1897, passing Sutro Baths San Francisco. The first electric streetcar line, the San Francisco & San Mateo Railway established in 1891, ran all the way to the Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma; another branch went to Golden Gate Park. Just five years later, in 1896, people could visit the Cliff House and Sutro Baths via the Sutro Railroad, founded by then Mayor Adolph Sutro. All you needed was a transfer from the Sutter Street Railroad’s cable car line.
