San Francisco Cable Cars 2025 Calendar

San Francisco is a city of hills. Horses powered the first public transportation to traverse them, but the demands were brutal. In 1869 Andrew Hallidie devised a system of steam powered cables to move the first cable cars. Horses were saved and San Francisco became a city of the future. The San Francisco  Cable Car 2025 calendar pictures the system in operation between the 1940s and the 1960s. Wait for the bell!
