A Tourist Visits San Francisco in 1986


Enjoy the sites in San Francisco in the mid-1980s (sadly not the sounds since the video is silent). A lot of typical tourist stuff here. So the Cable Cars, Golden Gate Bridge and Chinatown figure prominently, but the video is very well-edited for a home video and it gives you a street view glimpse of the cars and the people back in 1986.

    I kept waiting for Captain Kirk, Spock, and the rest of the Enterprise crew to show up…

  2. Just pepper them in the background throughout the film and then have a closing shot of the Enterprise taking off with the whales. I love it!
