Earthquake Days
The 1906 San Francisco Earthquake & Fire in 3-D
by David Burkhart

Stereo Views of San Francisco's Great Earthquake and Fire.

April 18th marks the 100th anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and Fire. Countless books have been written on this compelling subject. Yet, until now, there has never been a full-color “coffee-table” book about California’s greatest natural disaster, let alone one that features 3-D images of the catastrophe.

1906 San Francisco comes to life in this unique collection of over 100 original stereo photographs (viewer included) of the “City-By-The-Bay.” These haunting 3-D images were created before, during, and after the earthquake and fire that destroyed 508 city blocks and left 200,000 homeless. Accompanied by firsthand accounts, newspapers, maps, and lithographs, they re-create San Francisco’s great calamity and indomitable spirit with stunning realism.



Hardcover (220 pages; 10.25" x 13" x 1"; 4.6 lbs.)


“Earthquake Days is one of those rare and special books—both smart and gorgeous. Burkhart's personal passion for stereophotography rings through these pages, coupled with his great sense of history and storytelling. The illustrations are lustrous, with stereo card views, bird’s-eye views, and fantastic full color reproductions of period newspapers, lithographs and more. This book is a tremendous contribution to the visual history of one of the world’s most famClick for larger images!ous disasters.”
–Stephen Becker, Executive Director, California Historical Society

“What a pleasure and more—what a surprise to find in this elegant book both a revitalization and a powerful retelling of the familiar drama of San Francisco’s destruction by earthquake and fire in 1906. Burkhart has gathered not only the most complete collection of photographs (many of them stereo views) and other illustrative revelations, he has created—page after page—a richly rewarding, enlightening experience for what should be his many, many readers. What a pleasure for them!”
–J. S. Holliday, author of The World Rushed In and Rush for Riches

“A beautiful book.”
–Philip L. Fradkin, author of The Great Earthquake and Firestorms of 1906
