1906: Good Year for Traffic and Bowler Hats

with 5 comments

Hey Kid: Get Off The Tracks

Let me distract you. Take a trip full-screen with this old (107 years+) footage from a cart-ride through San Francisco streets. Turn up the tunes for a nice 7 minute break from the incessant demands from the corner office.

It’s a chaos of traffic going every which way: horses, cars and kids popping from left to right and back again. You’d swear the swells and sharps in bowlers and snappy suits would be killed every day in this mess. But the whole thing moves at a slower, predictable pace.

I love the mix of technologies: all getting along, more or less.
