Notes by Christine in conversation with Anne Ellinwood, May 29, 1996. Carriage was owned by her grandfather and used to transport her entire family to Golden Gate Park in 1893 for the first football game between Stanford and Cal. A video was made by KTVU about the buggy, seen by a personal friend of Mrs. Ellinwood's in Hawaii on CNN, and Ellinwood's personal videographer taped the buggy's transport from San Francisco by SMCHA.
