Stunning 1906 San Fransisco footage - days before the quake

I found it very touching since not only most of the buildings you see where destroyed a few days after the shot, but a lot of the people you see, just didn't know that they have only a few days left till they die.

How long had the car been around? And already there's dozens. Notice that monolithic building at the end erected in 1896? It only stood for 10 years.

That buggy going between 2 cable cars looked crazy.

Actually, there weren't all that many. Those were the first picture vehicles -- the producers rounded up a bunch of people to bring their cars and be in the film. This wasn't a test or a documentary, it was intended to be released as paid entertainment. See the other thread for lots more detail.
