Re: old green streetcars, punchcards, tokens

When I was a child in the 50s the "car tickets" were white and we bought them somewhere on Noriega - maybe Caruso's toy shop?

I think there were no Muni tokens in use at that time but I had seen old ones. When many years later I moved to New York I found tokens still in use for transportation and for some car tolls.

It's hard to imagine not calling a streetcar a streetcar, unless it runs mostly underground.
