Restored film of San Francisco's Market Street version of a film shot on April 14, 1906, four days before the Great Earthquake, 
The information below was kindly supplied by @powerwordkilll Thank you!
The original 13-minute film is A Trip Down Market Street, which was shot and produced by the Miles Brothers. It was preserved in the Library of Congress and Prelinger Archives, and in 2018,  Adrianne Finelli digitized and uploaded the footage for the Internet Archive. Now in 2020, Denis Shiryaev restored, upscaled and colorized the film. Shiryaev’s channel has even more restored footage, so check it out if you’re interested.
