This is Your Brain On Awesome Thoughts on the world from a student of the mind

17Sep/10

A rare glimpse of the past

I know this website has turned out to largely be about science and the brain and all that cool stuff, so I thought I'd change things up a bit with a fascinating video that I found on YouTube.

Now that I'm living in the Bay Area, I thought it would be proper to pay homage to the great city that made it what it is.  Here's a video of San Francisco's F-Train, circa 1905.  Of importance here is that this was just before the big earthquake destroyed a good portion of the city.

And what could possibly make this better?  The song - La Femme D'argent - is by Air...one of my favorite groups of all time!

So, for your viewing pleasure - a beautiful, interesting, and awesome perspective on life in one of America's greatest cities.
