|Notes||"Wooden collecting box used in Auckland (.) for San Francisco Relief Fund, 1906" (ocm) - This box was presented to the Old Colonists' Museum in 1955 by the Auckland Town Clerk; therefore presumably used in an 'Auckland' fundraising effort - "San Francisco was wrecked by a Great Earthquake at 5-13 a.m., and then destroyed by the seventh Great Fire that burned for four days. Hundreds, perhaps thousands of trapped persons died when South-of-Market tenements collapsed as the ground liquefied beneath them. Most of those buildings immediately caught fire, and trapped victims could not be rescued. Re-evaluation of the 1906 data, during the 1980s, placed the total earthquake death toll at more than 3,000 from all causes. Damage was estimated at $500,000,000 in 1906 dollars." from www.sfmuseum.org-hist10-06timeline (12.5.2004)|
