New Photos From 1906 Quake Released

Today is the 106th anniversary of the 1906 earthquake which devastated San Francisco.

In recognition of the date, the SFMTA has posted a new set of historical photos from its archive, some of which feature our area of the city.

The above photo from SFMTA's collection shows damage at the Oak and Broderick building which was used to house idle streetcars. The location is now home to Falletti's and Nopalito.

Here's another shot from the same building:

Meanwhile, here's a shot of people watching the city's fires from Alamo Square.

For more 1906 quake photos, check out a post of ours from earlier this year, "Remembering a Real Quake," or visit the SFMTA's online collection.
