Spotted this on another forum and thought it was worth sharing with my ATS friends. Sound is a studio job, but it works really well. Really gave me the chills once in a while thinking about how normal that day was and what was to come. Enjoy!

All those people are pretty much dead now. More evidence of the fleeting nature of existence.

Hey, that guy cut me off!

Ha, ha, ha!
I thought traffic is bad now!
At least we have crosswalks & traffic lights!

Thanks! That was really neat!
An awesome glimpse into the past.
Almost gave me a headache though, holding my breath...
waiting to see who or what, was going to get hit first!!!


Gotta love the guy with the bag, that crosses the street,
& jumps into the back of a random wagon!
And the lady in the dark dress that crosses the street from left to right.
She never looked left or right that I could see!
You go girl!!! Ha, ha! Wouldn't want to mess with her!!!

People must have had much steadier nerves,
& a lot less anger issues back then!!!
WOQ

Love it how cars drove back then wandering all over the road. I wonder how many of the drivers were drunk.

That's fascinating. I had no idea there were not traffic regulations. Horses, cars and people everywhere going in all directions. The attire sure has changed as well.
I enjoyed this - Thank you!

I saw it on ATS before too, and actually thought of it a few days ago, but I didn't know it was filmed just days before the earthquake. Well worth the watch again. So it was normal for people to cross the street anywhere and everywhere, as no traffic signals were yet in use.

If you haven't watched it yet, please do so, it leaves a lasting memory of "times gone by".

Thanks for posting that. The only thing missing are the smells.

You had to be light on your feet in those days. I'll have to look again, but I didn't see fat people.

Simpler times were not that simple.

I imagined being that boy in the wagon that poked his head out of the tarp (8min mark) and watched the camera for awhile. I wish I could just close my eyes and ride home.

Thanks for the trip into our past. Enjoyed the part at the 4:25ish mark as they passed the saloon.

Watch it on full screen with the sound up. Then you're almost there. Streets were crowded even then, and nobody had lights or stop signs to go by, they just went willy-nilly where they pleased.

I've seen this before several times and one thing I noticed this time that kinda reflects on us today. Very few fat people!
