Description

Filmed 4 days before the devastating earthquake & fire of April 18th, 1906, which virtually destroyed the entire downtown area. The negative was taken by train to the New York office on April 17th, 1906, narrowly saving it from destruction by one day. From the front of a cable car, a motion picture camera records a trip down Market Street, San Francisco, California, from a point between 8th & 9th Streets, Eastward to the cable car turnaround at the Ferry Building. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0205480 CHANGE BEFORE GOING PRODUCTIONS: http://www.cbgp.com http://www.facebook.com/changebeforegoingproductions http://www.twitter.com/cbgproductions http://www.gplus.to/changebeforegoing http://www.pinterest.com/cbgproductions More classic silent films added daily to the channel.
