    San Francisco 1955

    A simply beautiful Cinemascope film of a beautiful city as it used to be.
    The few, the proud, the likely insane, Metro-Atlanta bicycle commuters.

    Thanks. That was a true blast from the past.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    Hmmm...

    Actually, I wish the SF Zoo still had a railroad. That would be a big improvement.

    Also, the amusement park and tram over by the Cliff House would be nice, too.

    I like him going on about the "leisurely drive along the scenic boulevards." That is crap, as no one I know EVER has a leisurely drive in SF. Now, on a bike... then maybe it can be leisurely.

    All right, I'm silly. The train is still there, it must not have been running when I last visited in '09.

    Watching that, it blows my mind to think that I was alive that long ago... if not for very long yet

    Interesting to see that although it's 1955 in the video, most of the cars are post-1950 models. Probably a leftover effect from the shortage of new cars for sale during WWII and the fact that cars didn't have the longevity that they now have.

    What did they do, relocate all the homeless people to Berkeley for the day, or just sent them to the Occupy Oakland camp?

    Don't forget the crush of migration & foreign immigration. Along with the sad increase of homelessness that swamp the public areas.
