POSTER: C.P.R.R. Time Schedule
the time this schedule was issued, ferries from San Francisco to Oakland
were using the "New Landing foot of Market Street," a predecessor of the
present Ferry Building.
Ferries and connecting local trains
carried patrons to Oakland, Alameda, Fernside and Brooklyn. Fernside,
at the east end of Alameda island, is today a district of attractive homes.
Brooklyn, located on the east side of Lake Merritt and now part of Oakland,
was for a short time a separate municipality.
Certain trains to points in Northern
California originated in Vallejo and to connect with those trains, passengers
continued to board the Vallejo Steamer at the Broadway Wharf.
Theodore H. Goodman, whose name appeared
countless times on Central Pacific and Southern Pacific tickets and timetables,
came to the Central Pacific from the Atlantic and Great Western Railroad
(Erie RR) to serve as General Passenger Agent, a post he held from 1868
