12 Cable Car on Powell and Market Turntable in San Francisco, California

This is cable car No. 24 being reversed on a manual turntable at the intersection of Powell and Market. This transportation system started in San Francisco in 1873 and grew into 23 lines by 1890 but only three remain today. Nearly seven million tourists a year thrill to the iconic bells and rumbling sounds as the cars climb and descend the steep hills of the city.
