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.

“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 famous disasters.”
“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!”
“A beautiful book.”
