Film footage of San Francisco's Market Street from a moving cable car before the 1906 Earthquake. Click on the picture or here to view.
There's no audio on this, so I liked watching it with the accompanying "Buffalo Rag", which was one of many popular rags of the time.
Posted by the San Francisco Film Museum.

The folk artist W.L. Bourdeau apparently lived and worked in Ranger, Texas and all of his extant works seem to have been made between the 1950's and 1960's.
Odd Fellows Antiques sold a few sculptures by the artist, which can still be viewed here.
This sculpture was recently found in Florida. Measures 18" tall.
