A trip through time and history with stops along the way.

That's total devastation.
Looks like San Fancisco. Great and scary Wordless, here's my Wordless post over at High Strangeness Altoona. If you're feeling saucy click my Alexa link to raise my rating. If you're feeling really snarky then add me to your Technorati Favorites.
When San Francisco had that last bad quake in 1989, We were going to go to the S.F. Giants game that night @ Candlestick Park and decided not to. We made the right choice. I thought the house was going to collapse the ground shook so hard. It was frightening.The Winchester Mystery house is a must see if your in San Jose. Great way to spend the morning/afternoon. Weird and beautiful at the same time. Again, your posts are so informative...
Great Old B&W shot!!
What a lovely picture. I love these old pictures, they really are beautiful.
My bank had a photo of Liverpool during the blitz that showed a similar level of devastation. They refurbished and it went out to make room for the usual corporate uniformity...
I didnt realise that it was the anniversay of the earthquakes. Thanks
I can only imagine how horrible the devastation was after that earthquake. They rebuilt a very beautiful city, though. I've always thought that if I was going to live in a city, San Francisco would be it.
Nice vintage pic
the first thing I thought of when I saw this picture is "Waht a contradiction". its such good picture, almost beautiful, but it portrays such destruction
