[United States : s.n., 1906?]
Copyright: no reg.
Duration: 8:00 at 15 fps.
Photographed: late April, 1906. Location: various locations in and near downtown San Francisco, California.
This film is made up of five panoramas, four wide and one close-up, of the ruins of downtown San Francisco shortly after the 1906 disaster, plus a panorama and scene in a nearby refugee camp. Original intertitles precede each change of scene, but the locations provided are incorrect for three of the five views. The state of the ruins and camp suggest a date in late April, 1906. The absence of streetcar tracks in the "Grand Avenue" panorama dates that segment to before May 1, 1906.
