The Cable Car in America Hardback
Enriched with almost 700 illustrations, this book has long been the definitive study of the American cable car, a widely touted form of urban transportation that operated in 29 cities across the United states.
This once-promising technology proved inefficient, however, and cable cars were soon replaced by electric trolley cars.
Today, they are only to be found as a tourist attraction traversing the steep hill of San Francisco.
