Good Rough Footage
Ejaz | 05/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow. Some of the footage here is really rough and clearly shot by someone with a home camera. Not that that's a bad thing, it's just something that jumped out at me.

All of the films here are of San Francisco at the turn of the century when the city was trying to move from being a small gold rush city and become a real metropolis.

The city planners put a lot of effort inot growing the city and it shows here.

The rough footage is my favorite because it's free of the promotional aspects of the other clips and made me feel like I was really learning the truth about the city at the turn of the century."
Beautiful Travel Clips

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is a collection of tourist films and newsreel footage of San Fransisco shot in the first third of the 20th century. It's almost all black and white and has some silent footage with a musical score.

It's interesting because I know the city very well and I liked being able to see what has changed over they years and what has remained the same.

The golden gate bridge and chinatown shots are the best of the bunch on here, but it's all pretty good and I watched it several times."
