The State Belt: San Francisco's Waterfront Railroad
Before the waterfront was a tourist attraction! This book explores the history of the railroad that served San Francisco’s piers for over a century. The entire area of the waterfront was owned by the State of California, and therefore so was the railroad. This definitely is a book for rail historians and for anyone interested in rail-marine connections and in the operation of freight railroads.
Authors William H. Kaufman and Michelle S. Kaufman, hardback 180 pages.
