San Francisco - Cable car - California
The cable cars were invented here in 1873, dominated the city’s transit scene for more than 30 years, were almost extinguished by the 1906 Earthquake and Fire, soldiered on through two World Wars as a quaint relic (even then), survived an assassination attempt by misguided (or malicious) politicians in the late 1940s, were wounded in a follow-up assault in the 1950s, but survived it all to become a worldwide symbol of San Francisco.
