Best Local Example of Art Deco San Francisco 2000 - Muni's Streetcars, Market Street, et al.

Back in the '20s and '30s, municipal streetcars around the country morphed from earlier, clunkier models into sleek, moderne conveyances reminiscent of the Zephyrs, Chiefs, and other streamlined express trains then crossing the country. A few years ago, Muni acquired a number of these vintage gems from Newark, Philadelphia, Boston, and other cities, restored them to their former luster, paintwork, seating, and all, and today they're the brightest aspect of commuting down Market Street. Especially beautiful are the circa 1928 Italian models currently traversing the F line from Castro and 18th to Fisherman's Wharf.
