OMG, this is a great way to start your Monday!  Check out this remarkable video shot from a streetcar traveling down Market Street in San Francisco in 1905.  This was just one year before the earthquake/fire of 1906 destroyed the area.  It is way fascinating to see what turn of the century life in California looked like!

    That was fascinating. There didn’t seem to be any traffic laws in 1905 SF. Drive, walk, gallop, and run where ever you want. How did they make it for seven minutes without a traffic accident?

    That was really cool! I love the total lack of any traffic rules :)
