Sanfrancisco 1906 video (somewhat haunting) just days prior to catastrophic earthquake set to music
[link to www.123video.nl]

Eye and ear candy.

French group Air gives an awesome ambiance!!!!

This film was "lost" for many years. It was the first 35mm film ever. It was taken by camera mounted on the front of a cable car. The number of automobiles is staggering for 1906. Absolutely amazing! The clock tower at the end of Market Street at the Embarcadero wharf is still there. (I'm also wondering ... how many "street cleaning" people were employed to pick up after the horses? Talk about going green!) This film, originally thought to be from 1905 until David Kiehn with the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum figured out exactly when it was shot. From New York trade papers announcing the film showing to the wet streets from a recent heavy rainfall & shadows indicating time of year & actual weather and conditions on historical record, even when the cars were registered.... It was filmed only four days before the quake and shipped by train to NY for processing. Amazing but true!

Cool video! It seemed like mass chaos the way the people made their way around. Must have been a pretty big camera back then as you could see the people watching with interest as it passed.

Yes it's pretty haunting in the sense to see people looking back into the camera and realize they are likely pushing up daisies somewhere and have been for some time....

San Francisco was a gem port of the world... pretty big buildings.

It is also a Spiritual gate of sorts into the nation.

WoW Someone pin this! Amazing footage. Those were the days. Everyone dressed like pimps. Now we're all in rags and made to believe its "cool." I'm ashamed of my wardrobe now. I like how everyone just drives and goes as they please.
