San Francisco - Market Street - 1906

This video is too splendid not to share. It is a leisurely cruise down Market Street in 1906, perhaps just a few days before the earthquake destroyed it all. Look for the wonderful interplay of streetcars, horse carts, carriages, automobiles and pedestrians - especially the kids playing dodge-the-streetcar and hanging on the back of an automobile. Having grown up in the Bay Area, I also loved the sense of familiar but different feeling I got seeing this street I have visited countless times.
