Fascinating Photos of San Francisco From a Century Ago

New, 5 comments

Last week we brought you thirteenphotos of very early San Francisco courtesy of OldSF, a map that plots photos of the city through its history. This week, we move forward a bit in time to take a look at a couple of San Francisco's most fascinating decades, from 1900 through to 1919. During that time, the city was engulfed in devastation and flames during the 1906 earthquake, only to rise again for the Panama Pacific International Exposition exactly 100 years ago. The seven-story Victorian chateau at Cliff House reigned over Ocean Beach, but after surviving the earthquake it burned down just a year later. And the city itself was growing, spreading out from its early nucleus near today's Financial District to more distant neighborhoods.
