    it isn't going very fast and the there aren't that many cars back then, so it doesn't surprise me that the same ones pass by frequently. still I heard the same rumor about the car full of six guys.

    The earthquake was on April 18, 1906. this film was shot four days before. The quake caused around 3000 deaths, so it is very likely people on that film were killed during it.

    I believe the street it is going down is market street. They still run street cars on that street but they look more like busses than old timey street cars.

    When I lived in New Orleans street car accidents with other cars were common. the funny part is people would pass the street car before turning in front of it.
