New old photos of 1906 earthquake

To commemorate that today is the anniversary of the 1906 earthquake, Muni released a batch of never-before-seen photography from the aftermath. Three are set in the Mission.

Above is an almost totally incinerated street car on Guerrero Street, with the ruins of the Mission in the background. Below are scenes from Howard Street. (Now it’s known as South Van Ness, but it used to be Howard.)
