Default 3 paintings from a 1906 film

I was sent an old movie taken 4 days before the 1906 earthquake that leveled San Francisco. I painted these scenes from it using various programs.

The film was sent by an historian I know. He sends me lots of them and they are fascinating.

Missed these the first time.

Very interesting pieces of art. relaly like the style, fits the subject really nicely.

I am particularly fond of the 1st one, the textures really work well with that one and generally just find it a pleasing view.

Are they commercial films or personal films made by an amateur ? I think that the San Francisco films (1906 example) would be quite revealing ...buildings that are no longer there (destroyed by the earthquake), fashions of the times, old vehicles, horse and carriages, etc.

I would think this film and others like it are of some value due to the historical record of life they keep. This 1906 film ...over a 100 years old, just a number of hours before a terrible historical event....is quite a collector's item.

I have no idea where my friend got them. he often sends me historical images wither stills or movies. They are not for sale. Glad you are enjoying my renditions.
