A view from above, looking down the tracks of Angels Flight toward Hill Street (horizontally), 3rd Street along the left, the F.P. Fay Building beyond, and to the right of it, the Grand Central Market. On the right of the tracks, the ground has been cleared of buildings and brush as part of the re-development of Bunker Hill. Photograph dated June 9, 1965. 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.
