Caption: 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Group of women in front of a damaged waterfront building in the Islais Creek region of San Francisco, California, USA, following the large earthquake that occurred on the San Andreas fault on 18 April 1906. The epicentre was just off the coast of the city. Up to a minute of violent shaking caused heavy damage to buildings. The earthquake was one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the USA. Most of the damage and deaths were from the fire caused by the earthquake. This was one of the first major disasters to be recorded by photography. This photograph is from the Karl V. Steinbrugge Collection (source: Aftershocks).
