Market Street, 1905  NOV 09 2009

Man, lots of good stuff today. This is a film of a trip down Market Street in San Francisco taken in 1905 from the front of a streetcar. The array of driving styles and vehicles on display here is dazzling. (via justin blanton)

Update: The film is actually from 1906, filmed four days before the deadly earthquake. Here's the whole thing on YouTube:

A section of this film from later in 1906 offers a post-earthquake view of the same trip down Market Street (from 2:23 to 5:55).
