Title supplied by cataloger. 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. Angels Flight Railway was added to the National Register of Historic Places on October 13, 2000, structure #00001168. Numerous pedestrians are seen around the intersection of 3rd and Hill streets, the location of the lower terminus of Angels Flight. Present are the Ferguson Building, left, occupied by the Ferguson Cafe on the ground floor and other apartment hotels and boardinghouses (later demolished). Dated May 25, 1957.
