Little did I know when I booked my flight to San Francisco that it was the anniversary of the 1906 Earthquake and Fire. At the corner of Market, Kearny, and Geary streets is the Lotta Crabtree fountain. Last year when I was here a friend and I walked by this fountain and he told me the story of how the fountain became a gathering place for the survivors and how opera star Luisa Tetrazzini gave a performance at this intersection for the City. Now on every April 18 the 1906 survivors (and others I'm sure) gather to remember. I snapped this picture of the wreath with my cell phone (I'd left my camera in my hotel room).
