A Trip Down Market Street 1906 San Francisco

Ever wonder what it was like to be in San Francisco in 1906? Did you know that the average life expectancy for a man was 47 and a woman could expect to live to 50? This historic film captured the activity of Market street just four days before the city was destroyed by the great earthquake of April 18, 1906. Most of the buildings you see were destroyed in the quake and many of the people probably died.
