Giving this thread a S & F and a well deserved bump.
I've seen the before and after San Fransisco video before but not this one. As many have noticed the people seemed to walk and run all Helter Skelter
but they are "Running, Jumping [in and out] of the traffic and dodging cars, horses and street cars" They did that on a daily bases.
Also, regarding those long strides. I too think it has to do with the camera perspective but also consider the following. How many horse patty's were
lying about all over the streets at that time? I'm sure there were plenty to sidestep and over step. It was probably a stride/dodge that was common
place back then.
I offer the following video. Which shows us presently as a much more technologically evolved species but one has to ask... At what cost? We have lost
Imagine [if we survive as a species] what will people in 2106 think of this?
The tailoring business must have been smokin' back then. Every guy was walking around in a suit with a hat on. The pedestrians really had to watch
where they were going because no one else was.
FYI there are a few color pictures of the era (autochromes) that you can see on line. It really brings a sense of realism to the whole scene. The
autochromes were the first form of color photography that the picture information was stored on glass plates. The color came from potato starch.
This is the time that republicans want to take us back to. Absolutely no safety regulation.
Laws that tell you what side of the road to drive on...pffftt nanny state!
Publicly funded stop signs? Pfhfffftt...taxes are stealing.

Your deep seeded discontent for republicans is quite obvious. Why
is it that you have to bring up politics on every thread you come across? When I first saw your avatar on this thread, I knew right away you were
going to bring up something about republicans. And sure as hell, you did. Can’t even enjoy a video from 1903 without you ruining it with your
political ideology. It’s really quite monotonous…
