“You are there for a cable car ride in San Francisco“. Here is the city street during John Philip Sousa’s day. Made in 1906, this film was lost for many years. It’s the first 35mm film ever. It was taken by camera mounted on the front of a cable car going down Market Street in San Francisco headed toward the clock tower at the Embarcadero wharf. Traffic conventions weren’t like they are today.
This film was originally thought to be from 1905 until David Kiehn with the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum figured out exactly when it was shot. From New York trade papers announcing the film showing to the wet streets from recent heavy rainfall, shadows indicating time of year and actual weather and conditions on historical record, even when the cars were registered. (He even knows who owned them and when the plates were issued!). It was filmed only four days before the Great California Earthquake of April 18, 1906, and shipped by train to New York for processing.
