An Ordinary Day

Seven minutes of a day like any other, San Fransisco, circa 1905.

Looks like the cops hadn’t yet figured out that traffic enforcement would be a much more profitable enterprise than shaking down the local merchants for apples.

It is with a creeping sense of my own mortality that I realize my birth year of 1957 was nearer the date this film was shot than the current year of 2010 is to 1957.

    That movie was taken heading East on Market St, straight at the clock tower above the ferry terminal.
