Care for a Spot of Time Travel?

Hi, guys:

I think I’m going to start sending this one out every six months or so, so long as this clip is up on YouTube.

Ever want to go on a ride in a time machine, back to the days when White men still ruled the world, the days before the trenches of World War One and all the horror that followed? Try this: a cable car ride in San Francisco.

This seven and a half minute clip was filmed only four days before the Great California Earthquake of April 18th, 1906, and shipped by train to New York for processing. This film was lost for many years. It was the first 35mm film ever made. It was taken by a camera mounted on the front of a cable car. The number of automobiles is staggering for 1906. The clock tower at the end of Market Street at the old ferry terminal on the Embarcadero wharf is still there.

I like to watch this clip every couple of weeks just to re-charge my mental and spiritual batteries and reconnect with the totality that is our heritage on this earth. Question: how many "street cleaning" people were employed to pick up after the horses? Talk about going green!

Yes, my friends, there was such a thing as the past—and it was ours.

What a marvellous piece of film!! I get such an impression of freedom from it. The people there were living in a really free society. No Orwellian crap like now. It is similar to some of the film from the Third Reich, depicting white people in control of their own destiny.

Amazing! Pedestrians, cyclists, horses, cars and trains all using the same street; and everyone is cooperating and not running over one another. or arguing. Everyone seems to be well dressed and mannerly.

How did it get taken over by bugger boys?

Incredibly cool video. It made one feel as if he were alive over a hundred years ago. Thank you for sharing.

Very interesting piece Harold.

And it was made just days before the 1906 Earthquake?

Of course being a white governed city it quickly recovered and was back to being a prosperous metropolis that it obviously was before the quake.

New Orleans was still stagnant and lame under nigger management years after Hurricane Katrina. However, I believe they now have a white mayor and things may be improving.

One could speculate just how long it would have taken San Francisco to recover if it had been governed like (Chocolate City) NO. They would probably still be in recovery!

Also, the white governed city of Galveston, Texas was practically destroyed by a hurricane in the same time frame (1903?) as the 1906 quake but it too soon recovered and was again a prosperous busy port city like San Francisco. We should also note that both of these cities got their act together after devastating natural disasters with little or no Federal aid!

Yes, prosperity and self reliance was a trademark of white rule.

I thought the Model T was just introduced in 1906. What kind of cars were those? They looked longer than the Model T. It was a very interesting look at the past.

I read a biography of Jack London. He started out in Frisco in the 1890s on a boat in the bay. He wrote about the quake. He went up the yukon during the gold rush of 1899 in his own boat. He also hated the first world war because he could see it was destroying European people. Now we've got left wing self white hating ponces who are regarded as the great writers of the day. Not like London or Cervantes who fought for his people at Lepanto in 1571.

London stated he wanted to live to a hundred which meant he would have to stick around till 1976. He died in 1916. But at least he didn't have to see what became of his home town in the sixties.

This must be part of the inspiration behind some new hippy-dippy trendy thing my ex-girlfriend (who has a few hippy-dippy trendy tendencies herself that I didn't know about four years ago, hence part of the reason she's an ex) called "Steam Punk" fashion, except that the Steam Punks want bugger boys, niggers, spics, and gooks roaming the streets among them and actually believe that all those mud people and other assorted lowlifes can be trained t not wander into the paths of oncoming automobiles and cable cars. WRONG!!!
