A film shot from a streetcar traveling down Market Street in San Francisco in 1905, before the earthquake/fire of 1906 destroyed the area. Remarkable footage of the turn of the century lifestyles in San Francisco, California.

Was good footage, Jeff. I think this is the same film we got from the Library of Congress which I included in the movie I made to accompany the museum earthquake exhibit that Peggy did in celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the SF quake. Thanks for posting the link!

Nice to see the original street--seems very long and straight. Is there an old film for the "crooked street?"
