Deluxe Chevy

Yes children, let me tell you about the old days as we cross over the Golden Gate Bridge enroute our field trip in San Francisco. You know, this bridge was not always here, believe it or not! If we were taking a trip to San Francisco before 1937 we would go to the Sausalito Ferry Terminal and drive our car onto a steam ferryboat like the Eureka. Then we would sail over to the San Francisco Ferry Terminal. Children, back then your great grandparents, would look forward to such an adventure. Yes . . . your great grandparents were children also at one time . . .
