San Francisco 1906

My friend in England, Stan, sent me this wonderful video.  It's apparently the first 35mm home movie ever, and it was done by strapping a camera on the front of a cable car in S/F.  The amount of traffic is amazing and there seems to be no right of way in place.  Look at the number of horse drawn vehicles vying with the trolleys, cars and trams.  Also every one is wearing a hat.  It's a ride down Market Street and the clock tower at the end on Embarcadero is still there.  It last 7 minutes and I had to watch it all.
