"Cable Car / Cable Car Museum" Cable Cars Tip by furioso

Cable Cars, San Francisco: 29 reviews and 33 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: The cable car was born in San Francisco at four o'clock in the morning on August 2, 1873, when Andrew Smith Hallidie successfully tested the world's first cable car. Operated by the nonprofit "Friends of the Cable Car Museum" the Cable Car Museum provides not only an historical perspective of the importance of the cable car to San Francisco, but an insight into the daily operations of today's system.
