Description
English: San Francisco earthquake 1906 - panoramic view

View of the destruction brought about by the San Francisco Earthquake, 1906 Records of the Office of the Chief Signal Officer (Army) (111-AGF-1-A-D)

This is a composite panorama, meaning that it is pieced together from four separate images to give a panoramic effect. The photographer is unknown, though it may have been taken by the Army Signal Corps. It is printed on silver gelatin paper.

The photo was taken from the site of the Stanford Mansion, later the Stanford Court hotel, on Powell Street, between California St. and Pine St.

The square bell tower in the left frame is that of: Old Saint Mary's Church, 660 California, San Francisco, CA 94108
