26 Photos of the San Francisco Earthquake, & 34 Landscape Photos

A very interesting grouping of landscape photos, beginning with 26 photos of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake & Fire, including a number of original photos taken for the local newspapers and a few snapshots from the event. In addition, a variety of mostly western landscape photos, from a 13 by 12 matted photo of a decorated horse drawn carriage by C.F. Peterson of Deadwood South Dakota, to several farm scenes from about 1900, an early Oil well, and more. Most are American scenes, although one is of Plaza San Marco in Venice, Italy.  Dimensions: Varying. The Deadwood photo is the largest, and the others range downward to 9 by 7 inches. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $30.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

Condition:

The Deadwood photo apparently had a crack in its plate that looks as if the the photo is damaged, but it is not. The other photos are all very good.
