A Trip Down Market Street In 1906

This film was shot on April 14, 1906, just four days before the San Francisco earthquake and fire. It was produced by moving picture photographers the Miles brothers: Harry, Herbert, Earle and Joe. Harry J. Miles hand-cranked the Bell & Howell camera which was placed on the front of a streetcar during filming on Market Street. The video shows what life was like over 100 years ago. There is sound for the video as well. Please leave a comment after watching the video.
