The best source for information is Gladys Hansen's "San Francisco Almanac" published in 1995.

Good luck in your research.

Another great reference work with some formerely unpublished photos is a work titled "DENIAL OF DISASTER" by Hansen and Condon. This coffee table size book is published by CAMERON and Co. of S.F. It is by Gladys Hansen and Emmet Condon. Gladys is the archivist for the City and County of S.F. while Emmet is a former S.F. Fire Dept. Chief. They present a very compelling case in the book for the contention that there wqas a coverup of total fatalities and damage along with a shift in blame from earthquake to fire as the main cause for these losses. Pressure from the railroad trusts and business community was applied to the news media, et al, to prevent a scare/panic, related to quakes, that might be detremental to the growth of the S.F. economy.

You're overexagturating (spelling?). Large cracks only appear in much bigger quakes and on crappy ground. Landslides on a 7.1? Nahh. You just like Stevie Nicks too much...
