The Glória Funicular was opened to the public on October 24, 1885. At first it was designed as a water-powered system, then in 1886 it was replaced by a steam-power one, and finally in 1915 it was electrified. In 2002 it was designated a National Monument

Lsample Wow!!! You are certainly on to something. Thank you very much for sharing! I must tell you that this set leaves me feeling very pro-desecration. Speaks volumes of an underside that we create but do not want to look at; much less take responsibility.

lookwhatisaw As much as I like the photos, color, shots, etc., every time I see graffiti like that, I get sick. I know it is "art", but not when the artists have no respect for the canvas they put it on. Good post. Lack of social responsibility or even caring (because no one is doing anything about it) is sad though.

gonia Love them!

pcmcgarry I like these funiculars, we have the same sort of thing that take people down very steep cliffs on the south coast but without the graffiti. Such a shame that great artwork like this is done on council property. Enjoyable set Antonio.

karabana I like how you've made the graffiti look artistic with your editing.

djnana The people who create the graffiti are masters, just a shame it has to be on someone else's canvas! I simply adore #1 & 3, A!
