Video of the Week....

This blows me away...This is the first 35mm film EVER,
taken by a camera mounted on the front of a San Francisco cable car.
I wonder if any of these people are your relatives?
I LOVE the boys in their knickers trying to outrun the cable car,
women in their enormous hats, and the little troublemakers hanging on to the back of the cars.
The soundtrack is of one of my favorite french bands, (Air).

You are absolutely right...this is extraordinary! And, all so chaotically dangerous with everyone and everything dicing with death as they hurtle across the tram lines.
What fun. We were glued to the screen for the whole 7 minutes. This little film must surely deserve a cherished place within the archives of American history.
