I came across this and was astounded at the size of some of these cars, can anyone identify them? It seems that one car is in this video a few times. Beside the cars, what a snapshot of San Fran in 1906 right about the same time as the infamous earthquake.
Market St. heading towards the Bay. You can see the Ferry Building dead ahead.
The movie camera was mounted on the front of a street car.
It was a few days before the '06 Quake.
In '06 people just went nuts over cameras and camera equipment. It was all something new and exciting, like cell phones now, or a few years ago.
Everyone had a new camera, and they were keeping up with the latest new stuff, that's why there are so many pictures of San Francisco and the earthquake damage.
There were thousands of pictures taken the day of the quake by thousands of people.
