1906 EARTHQUAKE & FIRE

Aftermath

Make shift “tent cities” were soon erected in city parks. A child and a grandmother are among the displaced sitting in the grass in the first photo. 

In the second photo, residents cook on the sidewalk of Fillmore Street. Indoor cooking was forbidden for those left with a house and all cooking was done on the city sidewalks to prevent further fire.

Long breadlines which could extend for many city blocks were guarded by troops fed several times daily. A close up of the faces waiting for soup in the third photo.
