Like nomads settling in for a stay this is the largest tent refugee camp on the Presidio Reservation. United States Army General Hospital is in the background. On April 18, 1906 at 5:15 AM a quake of 8.25 on the Richter scale hit San Francisco. Greater destruction came from the fires afterwards. The city burned for three days.
