David Kiehn, Bay Area historian, traces old films
Monday, December 6, 2010
For years, Kiehn knew about "A Trip Down Market Street," a 12-minute silent film, shot in San Francisco from a cable car. The Library of Congress dated the film to 1905, but Kiehn suspected otherwise. Studying weather reports, vehicle registration records and show-biz trade publications, he discovered that "Market Street" was in fact shot four days before the great earthquake of April 18, 1906.
Suddenly, the film took on a haunting poignancy: We now look at the San Francisco newsboys, the carriage jockeys and the women in elaborate hats, and know that many will soon be dead.<SNIP>
