San Francisco earthquake. Wreck of the S.S. Columbia at Union Iron Works Drydock, 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 severe shaking destroyed buildings and toppled this ship. The earthquake was one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the USA. Most of the damage and deaths were from the fires that were caused by the earthquake. This was one of the first major disasters to be recorded by photography. This photograph, now in the Karl V. Steinbrugge Collection, is from the Bear Photo Collection.
