The baggage cart was parked to give the young boy sitting on it a view of the plaza leading to Castro Street.

Just outside the waiting area for the southbound trains, a sculpture of an old fashioned luggage cart was on permanent display. Notice the design of the cart with its triangular-braced wooden cross pieces.

The sculpture was a marvelous work of superb detail, right down to the bolt heads holding the cross pieces together, and a "steel" strap down its center to support the luggage.

Fruit crates were stacked against the luggage. One was from the California Supply Company of Mountain View, California, and the other from Day & Young, Santa Clara, California.

Was the boy the baggage handler or was he a passenger sat atop the luggage to await the return of his parents?

A bucket of what might be apples or pears sat on the front of the cart. The MV on its front stood for Mountain View.

An identifying sign was embedded in the sidewalk just in front of the sculpture. It read:
