Serial & Government Publications Division

Although the city was in ruins, along with its newspaper offices, three San Francisco papers combined their resources to print an issue about the earthquake and fires.

The Call-Chronicle-Examiner of April 19, 1906, an exceptionally rare issue, represents a triumph of the journalistic spirit, as well as an important source for the history of San Francisco.
