Kissell Kar Climbs 50% Grade Carrying Five Passengers -- September 27, 2021

Arizona Republican, 23-March-1916

Automobile builders still like to use San Francisco hills for their advertisements. The products of the Kissel Motor Car Company were advertised as "Kissell Kars" or "KissellKars." Kissells were expensive cars known for their quality. I must confess I had to look up Duncan Street to remember where it is.

There's a "missing piece" of Duncan around Noe, where I think the City decided it was too steep for a street. I bet this is where they took this picture.
