Looking west across the intersection of Hill (foreground) and 3rd streets, towards Angels Flight. Both cable cars are in motion and pedestrians are hovering on the corner outside the Ferguson Building, occupied by the Ferguson Cafe on the ground floor. All of the buildings shown were demolished as part of the re-development of Bunker Hill. Angels flight operated from 1901 until it was closed in 1969 when its location was redeveloped. The railway was relocated and reassembled at California Plaza in March of 1995, and closed again on February of 2001 after a serious accident resulted in the death of a passenger, and the injuries of seven others. The accident occurred when the ascending Sinai cable car suddenly reversed direction and uncontrollably accelerated downhill and struck the Olivet cable car near the lower terminus. The second funicular still exists and reopened in 2010.
