Time to give Knott’s Berry Farm a little love.
It’s pretty amazing that Knott’s had a real cable car system in the park for years. I’m not sure when they took it out, probably during the big expansions in the 1970’s.
Up first is an undated but pretty old Cable Car ticket, this ticket is large at 3 1/2” by 8”. 15¢ is the lowest price I have seen for the cable cars. Those little punch holes on the bottom indicate this ticket was used.
The back has a neat little story about the San Francisco cable cars history. Apparently the 5 cars at Knott’s came from San Francisco, they're the real McCoys!
The “green” cable car tickets are a little newer and much smaller at 2 ½” by 5”. Still some fun history mentioned on the front. I’ve posted these tickets before, but this is the only one I have the still retains its original stub.
The back has a fun map showing the route the cable car takes thru the park. At one time the route traveled much further into the park as seen on this 1955 Map (link).
And a nice little photo of one of the cable cars in action, they looked fun, too bad they’re gone.
