Vintage Video: San Fransisco Before And After the 1906 Earthquake

Check out this awesome video of San Fransisco before and after the 1906 Earthquake. In 1905 an unknown cameraman filmed video from a street car going down market street. A year later after the 1906 earthquake he went down market again and recorded the same street scene. The youtube video above shows both videos together, and the difference is pretty astounding.
