(San Francisco). 1951. 1st Printing. 4 pp. unnumbered housed in larger wrappers. Two full page illustrations on upper and lower wrappers, 8 smaller vignette illustrations throughout. 9" x 6-3/4".

Duke Ormsby worked for the San Francisco Municipal Railway from 1914 - 1951.

Signatures are on the first page. Four signatures from Elmer E. Robinson (1894 - 1982) - 33rd Mayor of San Francisco, Duke C. Ormsby - General Superintendent of Transportation (who is being honored), Chas. D. Miller - Operating Manager, Municipal Railway and George W. Evington - Committee.

The illustrations on the wrappers depict (assumed to be) Duke C. Ormsby working and dreaming of fishing by a creek on the upper wrapper and fishing and thinking about work on the lower wrapper. These were done by another member of the committee, Chas. L. Reed. One could also say he did the smaller illustrations as well base of style similarities.

Dishes served at the event had silly names realting to transportation such as "Crab Salad a la Muni Railway", "Cable Car Poullet" and to drink "High Octane Wine"!

Progam started with an introduction from Donald Mazzoni, the Master of Ceremonies from Wm. H. Scott, a presentation from J. H. Turner (Manager of Utilities) and ending with a response from D. C. Ormsby himself.
