Complete Streets: San Francisco

This video was shot in 1905 and shows Market Street in San Fran.  Be amazed at all the things going on in and along the street.  Look at all the transportation choices:  Cable Cars, gas powered cars, horse drawn wagons, electric trams, bikes, walking.   NOT ONE Traffic control device.  Yeah there were probably accidents – but we have a far higher death toll because of our automobile monoculture.

Here’s a city of nearly 500,000 people making it work in a low energy world.  The past is the future. (Hat tip to Charles Hugh Smith)
