Most old people say everything goes much faster today, that people are getting more aggressive and people drive crazy...
...and they could not be more right (about transportation speed). The video below shared by Hardscrabble Pictures however shows the way people drove on Market Street in 1906 in San Franciso and I'll let you make your own opinion.
Oh... and while you're watching the video, take a good last look at the city as most of it (80%) got destroyed just four days later by the big earthquake of 1906 (via Sploid).
