The nonprofit Friends of the Geneva Office Building & Powerhouse [Disclosure: This journalist is an official friend] is seeking memories and recollections from the public about the historic landmark.

“We would like the community to submit any remembrances that they have of the building from when it was in use to even now,” FGOB&P Chair Dan Weaver said. “We would also like any old photographs or film footage — any ephemera.”

The project is part of the way the group is celebrating the 1901-built building’s 119th anniversary on Wednesday, April 22.

Located at the intersection of San Jose and Geneva avenues, the former Market Street Railway and Muni facility is one of the neighborhood’s preeminent historic landmarks, holding a special place in the memories of all who have passed through and worked in the building.

The powerhouse is presently under renovation to become a community arts center.

The FGOB&P encourages the public to share their remembrances through a Google Form.
