Market Street in a T-model Ford


I find it interesting that such a disproportionately large amount of space is allotted to vehicles while the masses of people crowded on the sidelines, or side-walks as we call them. I often wonder how this bizarre convention came about…

Looking at this short film with today’s eyes, and listening to the music, I can’t help but expect some climax, of which there is none, so know that going in. What this is, is a snippet of what you might have seen from the front seat of a T-model riding to Market Street, back in 1906, minus the noise, horse smells and herky-jerky ride, of course.
