Slavicek L.C. The San Francisco Earthquake and Fire of 1906
New York: Chelsea House, 2008. – 128 pp. — (Great historic disasters).
At approximately 5:12 a.m. on Wednesday, april 18, 1906, the city of San Francisco began to shudder. Roadways rose and fell like ocean waves. Crumbling walls and chimneys rained glass and bricks onto sidewalks and streets. In those parts of the city built on loose, mushy landfill, the shaken soil turned to liquid, and crowded rooming houses suddenly vanished into heaps of splintered wood, trapping their terrified inhabitants within.
