CityLab: The Ultimate Photo Map of the 1906 San Francisco Quake

CityLab: The Ultimate Photo Map of the 1906 San Francisco Quake. “Thanks to detective work from [Woody] LaBounty’s organization, which is devoted to preserving local history, modern audiences can experience the horror of the 1906 quake from a galaxy of perspectives. The group has sifted through thousands of photographs provided by an anonymous private collector and pegged them on an interactive map as to where they likely were taken. Thus a denizen of the Castro can see what the destruction downtown looked like from, say, the nearby, lofty Corona Heights, whereas a kayak enthusiast can witness the city’s hellish burning from over the cold waters of the Bay.”
