    Ten Posters Documenting the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906. These were all issued as supplements to William Randolph Hearst's newspaper, the San Francisco Examiner and include: 18" x 32" "The Stretch of Ruin From Nob Hill to Russian Hall, Taken from the Top of the Fairmount Hotel..." (apparently one of the few buildings to survive the quake, as only one other building appears unscathed), 18" x 32" "Panorama of the Western Addition and the Mission" (some separation at folds and small hole in one corner), 18" x 32" "Birdseye View of San Francisco From Top of Wrecked City Hall Dome" (some loss to bottom corners), 16" x 46" "In the Heart of the Ruins - Panorama Taken from the Roof of the St. Francis Hotel" (border tears with some areas of loss at folds), 32" x 23" "Ruins of Chinatown" (few minor stains), 32" x 21" "Panoramic Views of the Ruins of San Francisco", 19" x 32" "Birdseye View of San Francisco From Twin Peaks" showing the burnt district with outlying areas seemingly undamaged (minor separation at folds), 32" x 22" "Panoramic View of San Francisco From the Water Front", 18" x 32" "Panorama of the Ruins in the Valley..." with Alcatraz in the distance, 18" x 32" "Panorama of the Ruins From Telegraph Hill to the Base of Rincon Hill" (minor separation at folds).
