Old film

I came across this old movie that was made in 1906.  The camera was mounted on the front of a tram so that you really get the feeling of how it felt.  it was filmed only 4 days before the great earthquake in San Fransisco and was saved by the fact that it was shipped east for processing.   This was filmed in the days before road rules.  Heavens some of the pedestrians took their lives in their hand and some of those cart and horse drivers!  Then there are the those in cars.  Good thing these vehicles couldn't go too fast.  It is even better if you go to Youtube and watch it in full screen.  There is so much to took at.  What were the fashions, for men and women,  all the mix of vehicles, the way people walk.  The list just goes on.
