Harvey rides again
Cheryl Brinkman, chair of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Board of Directors, shares a laugh with fellow MTA officials and Castro leaders during the rededication of the Harvey Milk streetcar Wednesday, March 15 at Jane Warner Plaza. MTA spokesman Paul Rose said the streetcar, number 1051, was completely rebuilt and restored during a two-year upgrade by the agency and the Market Street Railway. The new streetcar now has improved braking and the latest security cameras, while inside there are placards about Milk, the first openly gay person elected to office in San Francisco who was murdered in 1978. Rose said the project was part of a $31 million contract to restore 26 different streetcars.
