[SAN FRANCISCO EARTHQUAKE] Group of 20 photographs of the aftermath of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and the resulting fire.
The group includes thirteen images approximately 4 5/8 x 6 1/2 inches; six 6 x 8 inch images; and one mounted 7 1/2 x 9 1/2 inch image. The last ("Dinner time at Refugee Camp") is by S.A. Smythe of Los Angeles, with his stamp; the balance of the prints, which are unmounted, are of excellent quality, but are unsigned. Most are identified as to subject in pencil. A few with some foxing, minor tears etc., but in all an appealing group.
The extremes of destruction shown in these images are remarkable. The group includes several haunting images of food lines, etc.
