    I hope this comes through as a blue line, it's a marvelous movie of just a few days before the earthquake. It didn't turn blue when I put it here, hope it does on your screens.

    Looks better when it's full screen, punch the little square at the bottom right hand.

    This is a complete version (11.5 minutes) of the 1906 streetcar trip that was filmed in San Francisco a few days prior to THE earthquake. One can watch it over and over and see different things along the way that were missed previously. Absolutely, no traffic control to speak of. If these folks had a 'death wish', they likely had a good chance a few days later.

    This is neat! Traffic then is as bad as it is today! So much for things going slower back then!
