    In 1846, just 3 years before the gold rush, the population of San Francisco (then known as Yerba Buena) was a mere 50 people. We are expected to believe that 50 years later San Francisco was as sprawling as depicted in this 1906 picture? That is a great deal of immigration despite the influx of gold miners, who by all accounts, did not make it rich in gold and could not have constructed all these buildings. This is a massive and sprawling city capable of of housing 100's of 1000's of people. It seems like the timeline is fiercely inaccurate. I grew up north of here and it looks much the same for the past 100 years.

    I visited san francisco in or about 2008 and took a double decker bus tour, one of the comments made by our guide was that some of the city was built on top of ships stranded during the earthquake, i thought that was interesting at the time, but after watching your videos, it makes you wonder what else they built over
