Market Street – San Francisco Days Before the April 18th, 1906 Earthquake


If you have problems watching the above video, see it here.

60 Minutes came out with a story last week of a restored movie from 1906 simply called Market Street, an 11 minute film during the early days of film making. Amazingly, the film was shot in San Francisco just 11 days before the April 18th earthquake of 1906.

I wanted to present both the story that 60 Minutes aired (above) as well as the full uninterrupted movie (below). As well, I wanted to show just some panoramic pictures of SF in the aftermath of the quake. It is pretty amazing just how much a major US city changed in just a little over 100 years.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Thanks to Wikimedia for hosting the full versions of panorama 1 and 2.

Enjoy this bit of history.
