This cable car, which connects Nan'an and Yuzhong, is 20 years old. I found this photo showing what it looked like in 1984:

San Francisco, CA Muni Railway Cable Car # 12 lays over near the Powell and Market Street turntable, with one of the personnel (the conductor, I think...) trying to keep his hand warm (...and smoking, not allowed on the car...) standing beside the car. Taken by a Nikon D40x at ISO 1600 with a Nikon 18-55mm non-VR kit lens (at 26) Exposed 1/15th of a second.

There a a variety of light sources providing the illumination for this available light photo - including sodium-vapor & mercury vapor lamps, neon lighting, fading daylight, and fluorescent and incandescent store window displays.
