Today is the 100th anniversary of “The Great Quake,” known by our family asÂ “The Great Fire.”Â I thought you might like a look at a family photo taken that very afternoon on the street in front of their house.Â Notice the writing-it belongs to either Grandma or one of her sisters, or possiblyÂ Great-Grandma.
Here’s some more information from Patti on this photo:
The back of the photo is pretty messed up but what I can read says: Dew Drop InnÂ April 18, 1906.Â From our back door on Sacramento Street. Neighbors-Mr. + Mrs. Schwartzburg, and Belle.
That would be Belle Clark Collins, (Grandma’s sister) So, that means it’s the back door of Erasmus and Laura Clark’s house (Grandma’s parents)Â The Clarks always did have a sense of humor 🙂
