accident detail

January, 2018 Picture of the Month: An image from the 16-March-1902 San Francisco Call shows the scene of the accident at Jones and Ellis Streets. On the left is the platform of the single-truck Jones Street shuttle cable car. On the right is a larger electic car, presumably 563. The kid staring at the camera is creepy.

New in January, 2018: On the California Street Cable Railroad page: On the California Street Cable Railroad page: "FOUR PERSONS ARE SEVERELY INJURED IN DOUBLE COLLISION AND CARS OF ELLIS AND JONES STREET ARE DAMAGED", a 1902 San Francisco Call article about a collision between a Jones Street shuttle cable car and an Ellis Street electric car. Also a ten and twenty year update on the California Street Cable Railroad, San Francisco's last private operator of public transit.

Coming in February, 2018: On the Clay Street Hill Railroad page: A ten and twenty year update on the Clay Street Hill Railroad, the first successful cable car line.
