BC: The End
FC: 1940s | San Fransisco Street Cars | By Kristy Tran Period 1
1: On September 1, 1873, Street cars was such a success that it became the transportation of San Francisco From there to everywhere else
2: January 17, 1871, San Franciscan Andrew Smith Hallidie patented the first cable car. People were having troubles go up hill and Andrew saw an incident where the horses were going upwards and carrying heavy weights and slide backwards,putting the horses at risk. Which then he decided to make something to transport people uphill to not put anything else at risk.
5: In 1940 the street cars in San Fransisco had blue and Gold on it called the “Magic Carpet” that’s what it looked like when Angelou was working there
6: Street cars became so popular that they started to have contests for it, like the "Ringing Bell" Contest.
7: On Every second or third Thursday each July they have that contest.
9: Now a days I don't think people use it as often anymore, because of everyone getting a car or just simply just walking. For now Adults cost 1.50 to ride the streetcars and Seniors (65+) and Youth (5-17) .50 cents. 5 and under is free.
