TAKE A TRIP DOWN MARKET STREET, SAN FRANCISCO OF THE PAST

Posted by Billyjam, April 23, 2008 04:36pm | Post a Comment

This film was taken from two different short films shot over a hundred years ago along the identically same route in both 1905 and a year later in 1906 by an unknown cameraman, who captured the silent footage from a streetcar going straight down San Francisco's Market Street towards the Ferry Building. This short piece (one of many that utilize the public domain footage) edits together San Francisco both before and after the big earthquake of 1906. Footage from the Prelinger Archives, edited by Matt Lake.
