This odd looking and unique open air 'boat tram' was built in 1934 for Blackpool Tramways in England. In 1976, it was loaned to Philadelphia, regauged for US operation and repainted for special service during the US Bicentennial. San Francisco MUNI acquired the tram in 1984 and repainted it into original Blackpool colors, where it operated during trolley festivals until 1987. Brought out during special occasions (in this case, the July 4th weekend), it has operated alongside MUNI's other historic streetcars on the F Line since its opening 1995. It is pictured at the bustling Pier 39 stop at Fisherman's Wharf.
