information about morocco  Sidi IfniMorocco, Tiznit
The cable car hill station is an immense concrete bunker that would make a great museum. By European standards it is all remarkably un-vandalised. Although the cable cars and cables have deteriorated through rust and scavenging, the larger structures remain intact.
According to Mohammed it ceased to work in 1970, a mere year after the Spanish left. The damp climate meant a heavy maintenance schedule. Lack of resources in the new Moroccan state, and the departure of Spanish engineering skills made its demise inevitable.

Robert - I have rated this 4* more for the interest of the comment than as a judgement on the picture. How amazing that it can be so little vandalised.
