Photo: Philadelphia Flyer

Yes, I forgot to post a photo again yesterday. I remembered this when I was halfway to the subway station on my way to work; that's always how it goes. Again, I apologize for the newly unreliable schedule--here I thought I could handle something every other day with no problems. NEVERTHELESS. It has been some time since I've done a transit photo here, and the recent greyness in Toronto puts me in the yen to post up something bright and green. In that idiom, while I was in San Francisco back in 2011, one of the many vehicles I captured was this shot of a restored PCC streetcar on the F Market line, wearing the 1947 colors of the Philadelphia Transportation Company--incidentally, one of the few cities represented in San Francisco's rolling streetcar museum that still runs its own.

They're not as stylish as the PCC, though. Few things can be. I mean, look at that Art Deco trim!
