Fabulous complete set of ANTIQUE STEREOVIEWS of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. Remarkable set of 25 Stereo photographic views of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, all in sequence and all numbered 1 - 25. Terrific views documenting the devastaion of the earthquake. Included among the 25 views are the ruins of the Jewish Synagogue on Sutter Street, which is noted 'withstood the great Earthquakes of 1865 and 1868", ruins of St. Ignatio's Catholic Church, refuge tents at ball grounds in Golden Gate Park, bread lines, a Barber painting a sign "Shaving" on the side of a tent, photographers on the street, destruction of Nobb Hill (millionaire district), among many others. All 25 antique Stereoviews are in fine condition with expected age marks and some wear to the paper. The large antique Stereograph Photographs measuring 7" x 3 1/2" inches. The clarity much better in person than show in our photographs. There is an amazing amount of detail and each is beautifully composed. It is unusual to find a set such as this and in such fine condition. Usually after 100 years sets are broken up. Truly a wonderful set of the infamous 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and it's aftermath.
