109 years after the Great Quake of 1906, San Franciscans continue to pay tribute to that monumental event and those who died in the subsequent fire.
While many facts about the city by the bay may be obvious, there are many other facts that aren’t as obvious. Here are 10 things you might not know about San Francisco.
A suspicious package near the site of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake commemoration ceremony on Market St. Thursday morning forced an early-morning gathering of a couple of hundred people to move to Union Square, police said.
Three of the four known survivors of the quake were in attendance at the annual ceremony to commemorate the 106th anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire.
Family and friends gathered in downtown San Francisco Monday to mourn the passing and celebrate the life of Rose Cliver, one of the last remaining survivors of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
There are only three known survivors left from the devastating quake and ensuing fire that killed thousands. And only one of them – Bill DelMonte, who was just a few months old at the time – was able to make this year’s ceremony.
