The Calm Before the Storm

This amazing vid was shot just 4 days before a 7.8 earthquake destroyed 80% of San Francisco in April of 1906.  Over 3000 peole we killed.  The quake did major damage, but what did the most damage was the fires that roared thru the city due to gas mains busting. 

For this vid, they put a camera on the front of a street car as she headed east down Market Street.  You can see the Ferry Building tower at the top of the screen way in the distance.  Enjoy!
