    They got the job finished before the 28th day of December,just before the Exposition opened and in readiness for the construction and operation of an extension of the Stockton Street rail line along Columbus Avenue and Chestnut Street to the Exposition site. A tunnel ordinance was especially drafted for the purpose of carrying through this work, and a special counselor, Theodore J. There are many other matters; the San Bruno grade, the Ocean Shore, Butchertown sanitation, and other municipal problems which havc been on the calendar for a long time. So much for the "escape proof" theory.

    The record was rectified inwhen the formal report on 70 years of stewardship and operation of the bridge gave Ellis credit for most of the bridge's design. Condemnation suits had begun for the Glen Park reservoir site for a municipally owned water supply. The eastern span is currently being replaced. Muir Woods and its stand of California Redwoods is just a short drive from the city. In a famous battle of wills, the citizens' committee eventually forced a referendum on an amendment to the city charter, compelling the city to continue operating the Powell Street lines.

    Sinceone of the most imporant sights seen by passengers on the Powell Street cable car line has been Sir Francis Drake Hotel doorman Tom Sweeney, who has worn the Beefeater uniform and greeted countless people. Hale Brothers retail dry goods store has increased its business four times since the four tracks were operated. They got the job finished before the 28th day of December,just before the Exposition opened and in readiness for the construction and operation of an extension of the Stockton Street rail line along Columbus Avenue and Chestnut Street to the Exposition site. Over the past ten days, we performed an assortment of upgrades to our Cable Car system. Ellis was obsessed with the project and could find no other work during the Depression, so he continued working up to 70 hours per week without pay, and he eventually submitted ten volumes of hand calculations.

This finally culminated in the sweeping decision of the Supreme Court of the United States on April 21,in favor of the City, when it was granted permission to operate cars on the outer tracks down Market Street.

Surveys for the assessment district were made by Chas. Greene, since deceased, and Duncan McDuffie, the planner of St. McAfee, the same engineer who had charge of the Stockton Street tunnel, also conducted the construction of the Twin Peaks project, and made a fine construdion record.

All four modes are covered: rail streetcar and LRVbus, trolley bus and cable car, with one section covering each mode. The figures and graphics section includes information on the four modes of transit, plus information on historical data in the areas of ridership, fares, farebox recovery, logo and agency structure and leadership.

He still works in the store. It took a year and a half to get the plans ready and the assessment roll validated. URR was pressing to convert many of its cable lines to overhead electric traction, but this was met with resistance from opponents who objected to what they saw as ugly overhead lines on the major thoroughfares of the city center.

I am confident he will be able, with many suggestions dictated by his experience, to save the City many times the amount of his salary. The reconstruction of public utilities was badly needed in this portion of the City and domestic reasons above all, my wife being a native of the City, influenced my decision and favorable consideration of the Mayor's proposal.

Opposition was offered to this tunnel from property owners who wanted the grade elevated at its southwest end so that it would reach the surface of the ground at Laguna Honda Station instead of being depressed 70 feet below the surface, and suits were instituted which were defended by the City and all opposition was finally killed.

The character of the materials encountered was of a most composite nature, starting with good shale on both ends of the tunnel at Bush Street and at California Street, and running into very heavy schist near the center at Pine Street.
