Calfornia Street Cable Car, San Francisco, CA

This image is nearly identical to the previous one, showing a cable car climbing from the intersection at Grant Street. The Chinese architecture is more clearly visible on the building on the right, as the car is now further up the street and has a higher vantage point.

The description states:


Looking down California Street. San Francisco had its first cable car in 1873, replacing the horse car used in that period. Creator of the cable railway was Andrew Hallidie.

–The description is the same, but the cars and fashions have changed, and indicate this card is from the 1960s.
