San Francisco Four Days before the Quake

HH Note: Take a stroll down memory lane and take a quick glimpse into life in San Franscisco just days before their earthquake. It's awesome to see the horses, the clothing, and the sheer numbers of people on the street. Can you imagine sauntering out today in traffic? History. Ain't it grand!

Thanks to Kathryn Doyle of the California Genealogical Society for tweeting about this fascinating film footage. It's film shot from a cable car traveling down Market Street in San Francisco, just four days before the quake and fire. Whether or not you have San Francisco ancestors, you'll find this film worth your time.....
