Check out this interesting piece of San Francisco history: a 1939 Shell guide to the Bay Area that instructs drivers how to behave on San Francisco streets. It’s striking in how cautious it advises motorists to be, especially considering that it comes from a gasoline company. For example, the guide tells drivers to go 15mph through all intersections and to never turn right on a red light in the congested downtown core. Many could still use this advice today!
