Exhibition: Out of the Ashes: Snapshots of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake

Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 10:00am

Autry Museum in Griffith Park
4700 Western Heritage Way
Los Angeles, CA 90027

An earthquake struck the city of San Francisco early in the morning of April 18, 1906. The earthquake, along with the fires that followed, was among the most destructive disasters in United States history. It was also one of the first disasters to be widely photographed, with tens of thousands of images taken by professional and anonymous photographers. Drawing from the Autry’s collection of images made and circulated in the aftermath of the disaster, this exhibition features original lantern slides, photographs, and panoramas alongside large-scale digital reproductions of photographs.
