1906 San Francisco Earthquake|Before & After Journey Down Market Street

One hundred five years ago today the Old San Francisco Mint was shaken and stirred, but stood strong while most of the city lie in ruins.  I thought I would post this video to show the actual damage and destruction that happened in San Francisco that day.  The Previous post shows a photo of the mint shortly after the quake.  The Mint building looks undisturbed compared to what you see in the video.  The before footage with the hustle and bustle of a thriving city and after showing the utter desolation.
