Memorial - San Francisco earthquake 1906
The earthquake struck at 5:12 a.m. on Wednesday, April 18, 1906.
The fire hydrant (at the corner of Church and 20th Street) is painted in gold, because that's where the fire, destroying most of the city, was finally stopped. Today the "San Francisco History Association" put a wreath on it (their website shows the event as: "1906 Earthquake & Fire Rememberance").
