In this picture you can see the many people enjoying the water fountain outside of teh exploratorium during a sunny day. The task of creating a Palace of Fine Arts for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition fell to the architect Bernard R. Maybeck, then fifty years old and known for his innovative ideas. Setting to work on this new project, he chose as his theme a Roman ruin, mutilated and overgrown, in the mood of a Piranesi engraving. The Palace of Fine Arts was meant to give delight by its exterior beauty, but its purpose was also to offer all visitors a stimulating experience within doors.

#489 — A scenic picture of a San Francisco Cable car coming up Hyde Street. San Francisco's cable cars are unique in that they are the only street railway in which the cars do not operate under their own power. Instead, the cars are propelled mechanically, by "gripping" a continuously moving steel cable which runs in a conduit underneath a slot between the rails. The cable is kept in motion by an engine in a centrally-located powerhouse. The cable car system was developed in San Francisco because of a guy named Andrew Hallidie whom in 1869 witnessed a horse-car accident and wanted to develop a cable railway to stop such accidents. In 1873 HGallidie tested the first cable car system near the top of Nob HIll at Clay and Jones Streets. Ever since this date the Cable Car system kept growing and became one of the symbols of San Francisco.
