This panoramic Wee Planet shows a unique view of San Francisco in flames, five hours after the 1906 earthquake. The historic photograph was taken from Mason Street at 10:00 A.M., April 18, 1906 and later converted to a Wee Planet by artist Nikki Smith. There is little evidence of earthquake damage in this photo. Most of the city's downtown buildings appear to be intact, yet flames later partially or wholly destroyed these buildings. The fire continued unchecked for three days.
