I love that there were apparently no traffic laws! Reminds me of our returning soldiers accounts of what traffic is like in Iraq. (Actually, bike messengers in SF still observe no traffic laws to this day.)
For comparison here is the same trip taken 100 years later in 2005:
This is exactly the same route I would take to work everyday when I lived in San Francisco, straight down Market to the Embarcadero, although I traveled it underground on MUNI.

It’s that time of year again! October is here, the weather has turned crisp if not downright cold, the days are markedly shorter, and the grocery stores are already bursting with candy and pumpkins.
Fall has arrived and Halloween is almost upon us.
I love Halloween. Witches, goblins, ghosts and ghouls. Carving pumpkins, trick or treating on foggy nights. (Okay, I haven’t gone trick or treating in ages, but I do like to go all out on the house.) I’ve just never out-grown my love for the fun of Halloween.
And there have always been certain movies that to me are “Halloween movies” — not necessarily because they’re scary (Friday the 13th and Jaws are among the most popular horror movies ever, for example, but what do a killer fish at the beach and a madman at summer camp have to do with Halloween?) — but because they put you in mind of full moons, foggy nights, spooky stories and a crackling fire. Or because they conjure up rich visions of classic Halloween legends: werewolves, witches, vampires and other assorted things that go bump in the night.

Here are my favorite films to watch every October (in no particular order.) Scary, spooky, fearsome or funny — it’s an eclectic mix of genres — each one is guaranteed to be a ghoulishly good treat. (Click images for reviews and trailers.)
