Photo, possibly taken from the observation tower at the top of the hill, is looking south down 3rd Street. Angels Flight is visible on the right and the street below shows several large buildings such as the F.P. Fay Bldg., the Pan American Bldg., and Metropolitan Water District Bldg.; 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 but does not operate. Angels Flight Railway was added to the National Register of Historic Places on October 13, 2000 - structure #00001168.
