Time Travel - 4 Days Before the Great Earthquake - You're On A San Francisco Cable Car April 1906

A historical ride (camera mounted on the front of a cable car) down Market Street in San Francisco on April 14, 1906. It was one of the first 35mm films ever taken. The clock tower at the end of Market Street at the Embarcadero (Spanish for Wharf) is still there. The film was originally thought to be from 1905 until David Kiehn, with the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, figured out exactly when it was shot.
