POST-QUAKE PROCLAMATION:  read more
At 5:12 on the morning of April 18, 1906, a powerful earthquake struck San Francisco. The temblor was so strong that it was felt as far north as southern Oregon, and south beyond Los Angeles. The citizens of San Jose had to contend with fire, destruction, and looting on the day of the quake. By afternoon, San Jose Mayor George Worswick had this flyer printed and posted all over town, hoping to restore some order to the chaos.
