San Francisco Cable Cars, CA: These are the only cable cars still operating in an American city. Begun in August 1873, this system of traction locomotion was designed to accommodate even the steepest grades, which explains why ten miles of track are still in use in this very hilly "city by the Bay." Alcatraz Island, which is pictured in the background, is also a National Historic Landmark.
