Best 1906 SAN FRANCISCO EARTHQUAKE California Fire Disaster 1st Report Newspaper. (Note: additional images are located below the description). Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE CALL-CHRONICLE-EXAMINER, San Francisco, California, April 19, 1906. Best San Francisco earthquake issue to be had. This newspaper is destined to be–if not already–one of the premiere issues of the early 20th century. See the photos for the great headlines and reports found not only on the front page buts on all four pages. Due to the destruction of the presses in San Francisco, these three separate & competing newspapers combined under one masthead for this issue, printing the paper of this date across the bay on the presses of the Oakland Tribune. This issue is noteworthy in containing no advertisements but rather is replete in its four pages with reports on the earthquake and fire. Also worth noting is the missing dateline at the top of page 3 as this page is actually the same as the Oakland Tribune edition of April 18–they used it over again for this combined San Francisco issue. I once read that since normal distribution of the newspaper was severely disrupted, stacks of this issue were simply set out on the streets for passers-by to take. Complete with all four pages. This issue was folded several times and had cracked at many of the folds, so there are many archival mends on the inside pages to strengthen the issue. Two small wear holes on the front leaf as well.
