Description

Rare political pamphlet, promoting a campaign supporting the Yes on Charter Amendment 24, regarding the regulation and renewal of Private Street Railway in the city.

The map shows the routes of privately-owned streetcar lines in San Francisco and the expiration dates of the various franchises. Slogan at top left reads "For Your Pocketbook's Sake, Take Street Cars Out of Politics...Yes on Charter Amendment 24 Will Do It!"

The amendment sought to revoke all private permits and franchises and give control of the streetcars to the city of San Francisco.

Also shows the Municipal Golf Course at Rancho Laguna de la Merced and other major destinations.

A rare and fascinating map.
