Aerial tram- and cable-ways


Low-tech magazine is back with another well-written and -researched article from Kris de Kecker, this one covering the history and evolution of elevated-cable systems for hauling cargo and people. As always, Kris’s updates are informative and inspirational and provide a refreshing counterpoint, in both style and substance, to the frantic pace of today’s blogosphere. [Thanks, Blake!]
