The plaque is actually located behind the remaining part of the station, to the viewers' left. The mural is there as well. Very attractive.

Yes, the clock tower building that used to be the station has been the home for as long as I can remember to J Hamburger and Such. In addition to the commemorative plaque, there is now a mural memorializing the Key System on the back wall of the burger place.

When I was a kid, we took this trolley to Indian Rock Path or downtown Berkeley. at the path we would run down to the Solano theater and watch 15 cartoons, and a Serial "Flash Gordon and the Mud Men", Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers, Tom Mix, and a bag of popcorn, a Charms sucker and a Coke...for .35 cents. The building in the Palm Trees above the circle was the HQ of the Kensington Police...for my lifetime there it was Chief Yool. My Dad worked at the Arlington Pharmacy with Proprietor, Louis Stein. He was a historian and active with the RR museum in Solano County where many Key System trains and these trolleys ended up.
