San Francisco at the turn of the century  -- 1897 - 19 16

This collection contains 61 films of San Francisco dating from 1897 to 1916.  Of these 61 film shorts, 40 are Edison Company Kinetoscope film productions, while the remaining were filmed by Keystone or the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company.  These motion pictures present a rare animated record of early San Francisco history at the turn of the century. Some of the things you will see on this DVD are films of San Francisco before and after the Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906.   39 of the films depict San Francisco and its environs before the 1906 disaster.  Scenes of Fisherman's Wharf, the Lurline and Sutro baths and the Golden Gate bridge are just a few of the early film clips on this DVD.  13 films describe the great earthquake and fire and other films include a 1915 travelogue that shows scenes of the rebuilt city.  Also included is a 5-part series of Mabel Normand and Fatty Arbuckle  viewing the World's Fair at San Francisco plus much, much more. Each film is titled and ranges from less than a minute to several minutes in length, with the combined viewing time for all 61 films at 1 hour and 55 minutes.  All clips are in black and white as originally produced and have no sound.  Just scan the list of films below to see the complete picture!!!
