Daros un viaje por el San Francisco de 1906 en tranvía. Cuatro días antes del gran terremoto. Esta película estuvo perdida durante muchos años. Disfrutadla.
A cable car ride in San Francisco.
There was a different kind of Pride in that town
This seven and a half minute clip was filmed only four days before the Great California Earthquake of April 18th, 1906, and shipped by train to New York for processing. This film was lost for many years. It was the first 35mm film ever made. It was taken by a camera mounted on the front of a cable car. The number of automobiles is staggering for 1906. The clock tower at the end of Market Street at the old ferry terminal on the Embarcadero wharf is still there.
Question: how many "street cleaning" people were employed to pick up after the horses? Talk about going green!
