Three plaques provide an historical overview of the the Sausalito ferry terminals.

c. 1890
In 1907 the rail system in Sausalito was expanded to consolidate facilities so that interurban trains could operate only from Sausalito. From the rail hub in downtown customers could leave the ferries and go directly to the rail cars that stood waiting for them. The rail lines extended from Sausalito to Ukiah.

c. 1903
The Sausalito rain yard was a hub of transportation. Both ferry and rail met here to distribute their customers returning from San Francisco or heading north to San Rafael.
The little ferry Tiburon was a favorite to ride. Built in 1884 by San Francisco and Northern Pacific, she was 132 feet long and 50 feet wide. She was terminated from service in 1924.

c. 1924
The activity in this 1924 view of Sausalito's waterfront reflects the prosperity of the time and the growth of the automobile ferry business.
At left is the Northwestern Pacific terminal with the steamers Cazadero, Sausalito and Eureka. Behind the live oak tree is the motor vessel Marin. The new motor vessel Golden West is in the Golden Gate Ferry terminal at the right. Richardson's Bay was famous for the old sailing ships anchored in it.
