Frank H Buck on the Rocks (2 Clement)
This Car Direct To the Tanker Frank H Buck On the rocks.
There are the remains of Frank H Buck built at Union Iron Works: she quickly became accustomed to calamity and was pressed to wartime service.
Fog bound at the gate, she crossed course with President Coolidge of Dollar Lines, and though the crew came safely to the shore, Frank H Buck has finally come to rest at Mile Rock Beach beside Lyman Stewart, her patient sister.
Ride the 2 Clement from the ferries to Lands End, Point Lobos and Sutro Baths direct to the tanker On the rocks.
Footnotes to the poem: This poem was inspired by a photo from 1937 of the 2 Clement, at that time a streetcar operated by the Market Street Railway. The 2 Clement rails ran all the way across the city to Sutro Baths, rather than terminating at Park Presidio Blvd, as the Muni bus route does today.
