    Unused / unissued material -

    San Francisco, California, United States of America (USA). Damage is caused by an earthquake.

    CU Newspapers which read 'San Francisco rocked by 'quake.' Various shots of crowds in street, panning up buildings showing windows broken and cornices that were knocked off some buildings by an earthquake. MS Firemen removing shattered glass from broken windows. Interior general view of store with canned foods all over the floor and of employees packing them into big boxes. Various shots of shattered bridge which connected the Harding Golf Course to the main highway. GV Highway blocked by gaping break, water running from broken mains. Various shots of firemen putting out fires in warehouses etc.

    (F/G) Old record suggests material may date from around 27/03/1957.

    Cataloguer's Note: The shake on the film is caused by poor film not by aftershocks - MD.
