November, 2018 Picture of the Month: At the corner of Fillmore and Broadway, Fillmore Hill counterbalance car 623 waits for passengers to transfer from a 22-Fillmore streetcar before it plunges down the hill. Photo circa 1940. (Source: OpenSFHistory / wnp37.04185.jpg).

New in November, 2018: On the San Francisco page: A ten and twenty year update on San Francisco's Fillmore Hill Counterbalance, which carried passengers up and down one of the steepest hills in the city.

Coming in December, 2018: Christmas on the Cables.
