Imagine stepping back in time to, say, around 1937. If you lived in Los Angeles, you could ride on a yellow streetcar like this. Shirley Temple dedicated the first one when she was a popular child star.
Today, this streetcar zips along the Embarcadero of San Francisco. It picks up passengers at this historic Ferry Building, where you can still catch a ferry across the bay.
This week’s song is “Big Yellow Taxi.” When these streetcars traversed Los Angeles, they were called “Yellow Cars.” So I’m going with a variation on the theme. They certainly do taxi a lot of people to and fro along the wharf.
