Vintage Streetcars of San Francisco
Here's why I never head out to lunch without my camera:

The San Francisco Municipal Railway (aka "Muni") operates a historic fleet of restored streetcars along the F Line, which runs from the Castro District, down Market Street, along the Embarcadero, to Fisherman's Wharf.

The cars are restored by Muni employees and volunteers, and supported by a nonprofit foundation. The fleet consists of three basic types: one-off historic cars drawn from around the world; a dozen or so Peter Witt cars from the 1920s that were acquired from Milan, Italy; and 28 streamlined PCC (Presidents’ Conference Committee) cars that were first introduced during the 1940s.

Watching these old streetcars pass by is always a time-warp. They're colorful, elegant, and very functional, which is why they're one of my favorite additions to the fabric of the city.
