WOW - Pacific Electric 1914 Training Film

Sorry to deviate from the "noir" theme yet again, but I thought everyone might be interested in this: The "Hidden Los Angeles" Facebook group posted a link to a Pacific Electric motorman training film from 1914. Sadly, the archivists were only able to preserve about 8 minutes of what was probably a 20-30 minute film, but I still think it's really cool. There's even a pretty impressive stunt near the end!

Anyone else familiar with Hidden Los Angeles? I only came across it today, and it deals mostly with little-known dining, retail and sightseeing spots; L.A. history (called "Flashbacks") seems to be only one small part of the site. Am I way behind the curve on this?
