While it is not possible to return to San Francisco in the days after the destructive earthquake that shook the city on April 18, 1906, this well-thought out site from the Bancroft Library at Berkeley offers visitors a cornucopia of visual ephemera and primary documents related to this famed event. As part of a collaborative effort with other area institutions (including Stanford University and The Society of California Pioneers), staff members at the Bancroft Library have created this collection for the general public. On the site, visitors will find an interactive map of the city, complete with links to a host of historic photographs. Other features include a 360-degreee panoramic view of the city in ruins and a fine list of additional resources, such as relevant books, articles and dissertations of note. Overall, this is a well-presented site and one that merits several visits.
