Early San Francisco

Early San Francisco, originally uploaded by deanv41.

I could have snapped any number of stills from Prelinger's filmography of San Francisco at The Old Mint Exhibition, i just happened to catch this one. It's a moment in time from the early 20th Century in the city. It is out of all context, but it has enough information to be specific to its time and place, with hats, dresses, the Victorian bones of the city outlined, some time before the Great Quake and Fire.
