An audience goes to the cinema for the first time, streetcars come to San Francisco, The Beatles' "White Album" goes to No. 1, and the first American test-tube baby is born, all on this day.
1912: The first municipally owned streetcars take to the streets in San Francisco, California, with the establishment of the San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni). The first streetcar line, the A Geary, ran from Kearny and Market streets in the Financial District to Fulton Street and 10th Avenue in the Richmond District.
