Old Funicular

Who knew? Looks like there was an incline from the Strip up to the Hill District in 1902.

  1. You jest... but connecting the Hill District to the rivers has been chapioned by many. Mindy Fullilove in Root Shock even talked about it.

    Stairway? pfff. Rich Florida once suggested a rock climbing wall up Mount Washington. Stairs are superfluous.
