Mission District Following the SF Earthquake




Mission District Following the SF Earthquake

Originally uploaded by Thomas Roche

One of my favorite pictures of the April 18, 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. This one shows the Mission District in flames.

According to family lore, following the quake my great great grandfather, a fireman, took the ferry over from Oakland to fight the fires.
