Amazing photos of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake then and now (23 HQ Photos)

After reading San Francisco is Burning by Dennis Smith, photographer Shawn Clover sifted through countless photographs of the destruction from the great 1906 earthquake of San Francisco. Clover had the idea of lining up the photographs precisely to show the destruction of 1906 that destroyed 90% of the city with the present day. The resulting photographs are astounding.

    I can't wait until San Fran is completely destroyed and the religious folks say, "God has smote them for their corruption." And the rest of the world says, "It wasn't God or corruption, it was the stupidity of building a major city on a major fault line that doomed them all. Morons."

    Can't wait.

      I cant wait for you to be picked up for a serious crime under mistaken identity, thrown in the pen, be-friended by a big black guy, bent over and cornholed until you cry like a little bitch, flipped over an made to suck him clean. I can't wait…..

        Fucktard, did you think I said that to bash gays or something? I was saying that it's inevitable that the city will be destroyed by an earthquake because it was built on a fault line, but the religious loonies will argue that God did it. Get your fucking head out of your ass you stupid fucking prick. I hope you're too busy fucking asshole to get out of San Fran before it's destroyed.
