Invented by Andrew Hallidie

The cable was drawn by an endless cable running in slots between the rails and passing over a steam-driven shaft in the powerhouse.

Andrew Hallidie

He first started building suspension bridges, but soon moved on to cable cars and realizing that if a cable is thick enough you can a mass amount of weight which then came along the cable car.

Purpose

How much

It only cost a nickle to hope on the cable car to get you anywhere!!
