Back in October I discovered that mesmerizing long-lost film clip on YouTube, filmed from a streetcar in San Francisco. Purported to have been filmed just days before the 1906 earthquake and saved because it was reportedly shipped out of town before the disaster, there’s debate about that owing not only to the sheer coincidence but also to the types and amounts of motor vehicles seen. More than likely it was filmed there in the teens.
This one below, very similar in style and POV, is identified as having been shot in Barcelona in 1908, and whether that’s exactly true or not doesn’t matter. It’s even more captivating owing to the better visual quality.
Just watch. And enjoy:
