1880s. New York: Cable car construction


Cable car system under construction. Union Square, Manhattan, c. 1880s. A few things to remember, horse and cart moved all the heavy stuff about, it was real hard work constructing the track for the cable cars. Reminds me how grim building the great railways to the west must have been a huge task!
