Photograph of the great fire consuming the Palace and Grand Hotels after the earthquake, San Francisco, April 18, 1906. Police officers stand near a horse on the right sidewalk of a narrow street in the foreground. Tall buildings shade the street while the bright flames devour the two large hotels on the intersecting street at center. Although the buildings still stand, the windows are filled with flames and clouds of smoke encircle them.; Copyright 1906, by J.D.C. Published by J.D. Cardinell, Oakland, Calif.
