Another great travelogue posted to the web. San Francisco, 1940. Well worth watching all the way through. Streetcars, Bay Bridge trains, cable cars, oh my!
Thanks to Bay Vintage and SFist.
What a find! Thank you for sharing this.
The 1940 San Francisco film was terrific. It brought back some nice memories of the city before it changed so much. If you can find more film like it please show them.
There’s another one on youtube that features lots of streetcars on Market Street. The title is: 1940 San Francisco - GLBT Historical Society.
