    First 35mm film ever-Amazing

    I know this has prolly been posted before...but well worth another look.

    The first 35mm film ever shot, in San Francisco 1906, days before the big earthquake struck....from a camera mounted to the front of a trolley.

    if you're a history buff - Thomas Edison's film crew snuck onto Galveston Texas soon after the 1900 hurricane and filmed some sequences of the damage

    Wow.

    The panoramic of the bay looks like Pearl Harbor.

    Very cool.

    Lol, er.

    The music choice was perfect, I thought.

    Not a "period piece" of music, but kind of cool in that it nodded towards the future while keeping an urban theme.

    And horse doots.

    Yeah the music definitely had that "urban sprawl" vibe to it.

    The video is great. You can really imagine walking down a San Francisco street in 19 aught 6.

    Put a New Jersey driver in San Fran circa 1906 and let the road rage ensue.

    There are multiple rage-worthy near-misses in this piece.

    Iffin I was the driver of the camera trolley, for instance, I would have taken out that farmer in the horse drawn carriage that just drifted over from the left without even looking over his shoulder.

    Plus multiple civilians almost got killed by cars.

    A much more patient species of human back then, apparently.

    +3 (1 for each sentence)

    100 years ago looks like 300 years on video.

    Very cool.

    Very cool that they got it up on Youtube just a day after filming. Is that WCO at 1:06?

    If you like that version, you really gotta see the 3-D IMAX version.
