Three aerial views of the Embarcadero at the Ferry Building: At the left, is part of George Lawrence’s incredible kite photograph of San Francisco after the 1906 Earthquake. If you would like to see the whole picture, (and you should) click on the photo after the synopsis below. In the center is a 1940’s picture from Michael Corbett’s fine history of the San Francisco waterfront called ‘Port City’ At the right, is from a postcard I bought as a teenager.
