Remember the Eight Ball Bowling Alley, the NWP Freight Depot, Budworth’s Store, Jewett’s Blacksmith Shop and Gatsby’s, just to name a few of the establishments that dotted the street over the years? All will make an appearance during Mike’s talk.

A reception, free of charge, will follow the lecture at the Society's office on the top floor of City Hall. A new exhibit featuring Caledonia Street History will be on display.

Ron Dunne, Official Historian of The Caledonian Club of San Francisco, presented Society Director Jim Muldoon with the Club's Tartan as a memento of the evening and the Club's pivotal role in the 1868 naming of Caledonia Street.

This presentation will also be in conjunction with a walking tour of Caledonia Street the following day which is being organized by the Sausalito Historical Society.
