Oh, 1905. I miss you.

1905 ride on a cable car

While we’re talking about a century past, this video is most worthy of your attention. This fabulous first-hand film was recorded just a year before the 1906 earthquake. It shows a trip all the way down Market Street to the Ferry Building.

It’s a little long and has a few video defects, but it’s well worth a gander.
