San Francisco Trolley - SF MUNI Vintage Token Necklaces
If you love SF, you'll love our genuine vintage trolley token necklace even more. This piece features a genuine vintage brass San Francisco Municipal Railway Co. transit tokens.
Transportation service started as early as 1860 in San Francisco with horse drawn omnibus on Howard and Third Streets in San Francisco. Other small companies were also started on Sutter Street, the Mission and North Beach. By 1876, it was clear that the hilly terrain in San Francisco made horse-car travel difficult and unprofitable. Thus began the conversion to cable cars. In 1902, the United Railways of San Francisco took over service and by 1909, SF Municipal Railway, known as SF Muni, was founded. Imagine the click and clack of the trolley, the bell, the sing-song creaking of the wood and painted metal as you wear a piece of travel history.
