Postcard: San Francisco Cable Car, 1954

SAN FRANCISCO CABLE CAR - 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.

This week I noticed that the California Street cable cars were back on their tracks after weeks of construction work on the line. Seeing them just felt right somehow, the way the city should feel. Without them, something was definitely missing!

This card, from 1954 is from Louise & John to a friend in West New York, New Jersey. Louise writes: "How do you like these cars & hills. Mountains I call them. Went to the Muir Valley of Redwoods across Golden Gate Bridge. Next day went to Marines Memorial Club. Nice. Cocktails dinner etc. Wore my wedding dres. Bob & Ben got me a lovely white & pink corsge...."
