1906 San Francisco earthquake (36)

Market Street at the junction of Powell and Market, looking east toward the Ferry Building. The large building to the left is the Flood Building. The side wall of the first large building is the Emporium, the largest department store in San Francisco. On the right is the San Francisco Call Building. On the left, the structure with the derrick is the new addition to the De Young Building, and in the extreme distance, at the end of Market Street, is the tower of the Ferry Building.
