About this Item

61 Pgs of pictures and story about the first cable car and how the system grew in San Francisco. It calls the previous cars on level ground pulled by horses or mules its "mother & father". Mr. Hallidie (who has a plaza in SF named for him) took it down the hill the first time. Very cute story. End papers show Joey on colorful yellow and white background. The book is tight, not warped and shows very little soil or wrinkling. The staples are visible and other small spots of damage along the spine inside show it has been reglued. Back cover shows California Street cable car tracks going past Chinatown, Bay Bridge background. Two small spots on a Cover which shows Joey with men hanging off the sides. Women weren't allowed to stand outside until probably until the 70's. A very nice little book for SF or railroad memorabilia collector. Signed, "Happy riding with Joey, Naomi S. MacCabe." We enjoy your questions or requests. Size: 10 " Tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000615
