A long-lost roll film turned up in a California flea market in 2017. It shows before and after views of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Thanks to PBS, you can view the video below or in YouTube at https://youtu.be/Fm1XSX8Un5Q.

Amazing! Thank you for sharing. I am fascinated with the history of the area, for I grew up in the Bay Area.

Thank you! My mother was ten and a half months old at the time of the quake. The house that her father had built on Bernal Heights, where she was born, still stands today.
