Two short movies about US themes:

1) San Francisco Cable Car
The famous cable car lines have been built in 1873 and the cars are still working a hundred years later. They are shown in motion up and down, each car managed by two men only. We get pictures of busy streets, of the cable cars machine house, of the cars depot and of the turning platform at the end of a line. Included are some nice street views of the city.

2) The 5th Avenue
Along with busy traffic on NY's 5th ave and surrounded by lots of passers-by all kinds of street musicians are giving samples of their art.
