Text written under photo: "Last horse driven car in S.F. Mayor Rolph driver. Sergt. Owen Gormon. Gen. Supt. U.R.R. Henry T. Jones with one hand on rail." View is of the crowded front platform of United Railroads car #45 which made its last trip, according to Anthony Perles' "The Peoples' Railway", on June 3, 1913. This resulted from an agreement between the United Railroads and the city whereby the URR was given permission to electrify the lower portion of its Sutter Street lines on condition that Municipal Railway cars could use the tracks.
