In the 1890s, San Francisco transit companies started selling surplus cable cars to the public for $20 and many people in the Sunset turned them into bars, restaurants, even houseboats. Author Woody LaBounty shows images from and discusses his new book “Carville-by-the-Sea: San Francisco’s Streetcar Suburb,” about this quirky neighborhood that once rested on the edges of the Sunset District.
