Various Films of the Disaster and a erie sceen of market street before the quake. ..8 SHORTS OF THE DISASTER before and after ……….
This is a great contrast to the 1905 film of going down Market Street. Though I’d be more inclined to call Hurricane Andrew the worst natural disaster in US history, this earthquake certainly is up there and it is certainly a blessing that a film such as this could be preserved
Although the SF earthquake was certainly one of the worst (if not THE WORST) natural disaster in the history of the US, I couldn’t help but be amused at the spectacle of such formally dressed people walking down the street in such dire circumstances. The men are, almost without exception, in their coats and ties, bowler or derby hats, and often with their walking canes in hand, and their wives beside them are wearing those long dresses and elaborate hats so fashionable in the early part of the century. They all look so relaxed and so well attired as they laconically stroll along amongst the smoking rubble you would think they were all there for the grand opening of a new opera, play, or concert, instead of in the aftermath of armageddon. It has such a surreal quality I couldn’t help but laugh at the weirdness of it.
Absolutely astounding footage!! If we remember September 11 and recall how life “must go on”, we can truly understand the traffic (both foot and vehicle) seen in this film with the horror of the earthquake in the background. This short film shows (at least to me) the resiliency of the human spirit. A fine, fine, piece of history as it happened.
…………….. Interesting Earthquake footage here.. This is actually quite frenetic.. ItÂ’s speeded up a bit actually. The one IÂ’m wondering here is that there seems to be a LOT of people on the street. Where are they all GOING? ThereÂ’s really NOTHING on the street to speak of, and yet here they all are just wandering up and down
