Summary expansion
Most of the photographs document the devastation wreaked by the earthquake and fire to homes, churches, businesses, trolley lines, streets, and hotels and civic buildings such as the Grand Hotel, Palace Hotel, City Hall, and the Ferry Building and clock tower. There are several photographs of troops sent from the Presidio and Fort Mason to guard buildings, maintain order, and prevent looting, as well as nurses gathered in front of a dispensary. Other scenes depict earthquake survivors standing in bread lines, or perched on the boxes and barrels of their makeshift kitchens set up along the streets, including one street in "Castro Village." One of the large photographs of the Palace Hotel has ms. caption on verso: "Palace & Grand Hotels when fire first started. If used, please remit $5.00 to the Pillsbury Picture Co., 4990 Dover St., Oakland, Cal."
