This is some remarkable AI-enhanced and colorized footage of San Francisco captured on April 14th, 1906 — just four days prior to the devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake that destroyed over 80% of the city. For reference, even Godzilla’s destruction percentage isn’t that high. The journey takes on a trip down Market Street, ending at the San Francisco Ferry Building. I like how there are absolutely zero rules on the road, and cars and buggies just bob and weave and pull out and buck U-turns whenever they want. It’s nice to know at least some things haven’t changed.
Keep going for the video, as well as the source material for reference.
