San Francisco Now and Then

Great photo series from Shawn Clover that super-imposes images from the San Francisco 1906 earthquake with modern photos of the same locale. Been doing the rounds for a while but it's worth taking time to sit down and really study the seamless blending in the images. 

Pedestrians cross Jones St towards a pile of rubble on Market Street. The Hibernia Bank building is burned out, but still standing strong.

A women opens the door to her Mercedes on Sacramento Street while horses killed by falling rubble lie in the street.

A woman walks dangerously close to a pit of rubble on 5th St by the US Mint. The Mint has done a remarkable job surviving the quake.

Two girls stand before the partially destroyed Sharon Building in Golden Gate Park while students work on their art projects inside.

Pedestrians walk past Mechanics Monument at Bush Street and Battery Street while ghostly shells of buildings stand precariously in the background.
