The turn of the 20th century witnessed a renewed sense of optimism among Californians who were bouncing back from the economic depression of the 1890s. One wonderful aspect of the era was the multitude of grandiose schemes for the development of California. San Franciscans, too, were caught up in this upbeat mood and were soon busy building roads and railways. There was really never a dull moment in this Jewel city. Between political scandals and strikes, amidst earthquakes and fires, the city marched on.
This unique DVD captures a glimpse of life in San Francisco and portrays the never-say-die attitude of its brave and progressive citizens.
