-- On August 2, 1873, Andrew Hallidie tested the first cable car in San Francisco. He conceived his idea in 1869 while watching a team of horses being whipped as they struggled to pull a car up wet cobblestones on Nob Hill. He formed the Clay Street Hill Railroad and was awarded a contract to build the city's first cable car line up Nob Hill. Fourteen months later, on August 2, 1873, the first cable car made its way up Clay Street.
