John Cable built this mill around 1870 in the Cades Cove area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. At one time the water wheel powered both a grist mill and a saw mill.

The 1894 Cable Building at 611 Broadway near Houston (pronounced house-ton) St in Manhattan.The palazzo styled plant/building had offices for the former Broadway and Seventh Avenue Railroad Company.The four 32-foot winding-wheels that carried the cables that pulled the cable cars were housed in the basement of the building.1,000 horse power steam engines and 18 boilers were also in the basement.In order to isolate the vibration from the heavy machinery,the basement had to be dug 46-feet deep.The company had a fleet of 125 cable cars serving 100,000 passengers daily.The cable cars ran from Battery Park to 50th St along the above mentioned avenues.The Angelika Film Center is now in the basement of the building.The rest of it tenant offices. It's a really stunning building.I love the carved detail on the course band that's underneath those two rows of windows at the very top wikimapia.org/3638736/The-Cable-Building

This relief drain on the spillway to the waterwheel at Cable Mill helps to regulate the flow of water during periods of high rain. We just happened to be there the day after a heavy rain and it made for a beautiful shot. At Cades Cove, Smoky Mountain National Forest in Tennessee.
This is the Cable Grist Mill at Cades Cove in the Smoky Mountains. Milling lay at the heart of the small community which inhabited Cades Cove from the 1820s to the 1940s. Built between 1865 and 1868, the mill was the economic core of Cades Cove and has been brought back into operation as an historic mill. Cable Mill is the only surviving original mill in the area and was restored in the early 1930s. Today, the mill is in operation daily between April and October and visitors can catch a glimpse of what life was like for Cade Coves’ early settlers by seeing it in action.

Apparently, the San Francisco Cable Car System is the last in the world left which is manually operated. with only 3 of it's lines remaining - 2 of which head from the Powell Street Turntable near Union Square down towards the bay and Fisherman's wharf. A little scary to ride especially on the outside when another one goes past in the opposite direction!
