This mural was commissioned by the Mayor’s Office of Economic Workforce and Development in conjunction with the Polk Street Alleys Program.  It chronicles the development of the cable car system in San Francisco and pays homage to Ms. Friedel Klussman, a San Francisco woman who is credited with implementing public awareness campaigns in the late 1940s which ensured that San Francisco cable cars would continue to operate for the foreseeable future.
