Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Grenoble-Bastille Cable car, also affectionately known as The bubbles, was inaugurated on 29 September 1934 in the city of Grenoble and is the first urban cable car in the world. In 1934 cable cars were no longer an innovation. The cable car at the Aiguille du Midi had been in existence for ten years, the one at Sal ve for two; by that time Europe had a sizeable number. Even in Grenoble, a cable transportation system existed between Mount Jalla and the area of Porte de France since 1875, used to transport limestone from the quarries to the cement industry.show more
