Cable cars are so cool…

Video compilation by cleaverb, 1905 archive film, music from Moon Safari by Air

A film shot from a cablecar travelling down Market Street in San Francisco in 1905,
Before the earthquake and fire of 1906.

Note the way that pedestrians, horse drawn buggies, cyclists and motor cars and the cable car all happily share the same street area. Today’s motor cars travel much faster and, apart from thin strips of pavement, our city centre streets have become no-go areas for pedestrians.
