Angels Flight, the "Shortest Railway in the World," opened in 1901 and quickly became a city landmark. Col. James Ward Eddy was the visionary who convinced City Hall to grant him a 30-year franchise to construct and operate an inclined railway. The funicular system of two counterbalanced cars moving up and down parallel tracks was an efficient means of transporting passengers along the steep grade between Third and Hill Streets and fashionable Bunker Hill. The ride lasted one minute and cost one cent. Over the years operations were transferred to other powers, tracks were relaid, and the station house redesigned. However, the single-trip fare rose only once, in 1914, to five cents. In 1959 Angels Flight was destined for demolition as part of the Bunker Hill Urban Renewal Project but loyal riders and enthusiastic supporters thwarted those plans, at least temporarily. During the next ten years the community of Bunker Hill changed dramatically as apartment houses were razed and residents dislocated by the redevelopment project. Ever decreasing numbers of commuters and tourists and lack of funding contributed to the inevitable. Even the designation of Historical Cultural Landmark could not save the Angel and she was dismantled in 1969. Twenty years later, the Community Redevelopment Agency approved final plans for the California Plaza, which incorporated a restored Angels Flight. Although it took another six years and a good supply of bureaucratic activity, restoration and reconstruction started in 1995 and on February 24, 1996 Angels Flight was re-dedicated, now half a block from its original site. To fully experience the charms of the city's favorite angel you may visit her daily from 6 AM to 10 PM, at Fourth and Hill Streets. The one-way fare is 25 cents. And yes it's true: there is NO apostrophe in the name. (Dace Taube)
One Way or the Other - Fireworks @ Singapore Mid Autumn Festival
There's an Indonesian saying that "if it's your portion - you'll get it one way or the other". So last year we went to Osaka - scheduled so that we are there in time for some summer festival. There should be a big fireworks towards the end - just in time before our flight back. But then the unexpected happened. We got jammed in the sea of people. Literally cannot move. So we can only HEAR the fireworks, but can't see AT ALL. So we basically missed the whole show. Not a single firework picture was produced. But then... when it's yours; one way or the other you'll get it. I happened to rent a 7D for a camera try out - happened to be in Clarke Quay cause I know there's a mid autumn festival and NOT KNOWING at all there will be fireworks. I just HAPPENED to stand near the edge - best position to see the fireworks. HAPPENED to hold the best cropped body camera for low light. And voila.... After 1 year of waiting, I finally got my firework picture - when least expected :) And yes, the pictures are not as amazing as it can be (no time to take out the tripod, aperture setting was off, etc). But then again, couple of decent result still gained. Big life lesson :) If it's truly yours - you'll eventually get it... one way or the other :)
