1906 quake returns to Bay AreaBreaking News
Thanks to the digital age, the project brings the quake of '06 alive in ways never possible before. You can read scribbled recollections as aftershocks hit, hear voices of San Franciscans screaming as the big temblor relentlessly shakes, and view photos of what your neighborhood or town looked like in April 1906.
The online trove took archivists and researchers from six California institutions five years to build. The online archive, of which Stanford University Libraries, among others, is a partner, officially launches next Thursday. A companion physical exhibit opened Wednesday on the University of California-Berkeley campus.
