The number on the front of this trolley car is 1058...thus the title.  It's great how the city of San Francisco purchased theses trolleys from other cities.  A little bit of history gets saved and shared.

The streetcars, or trolleys, are different than the fabled cable cars of San Francisco.  The trolleys run from Fisherman's Wharf to Market Street.  The city not only purchased trolleys from all over the country, but from Milan, Italy as well.   About 20 different street cars from Muni's fleet operate daily.

Great composition and tonal values helps make the tram really pop.
