Photographer Shawn Clover combines images of the San Francisco 1906 earthquake with modern scenes of life in San Francisco. Mr. Clover precisely lines up the photos taken in 1906 with his own. The two are carefully photoshopped together resulting in a gentle blend of powerful imagery:
A woman opens the door to her Mercedes on Sacramento Street while horses killed by falling rubble lie in the street.
A bicyclist rides towards the fallen Valencia St. Hotel and a huge sinkhole that has opened up in the street.
Cars travel down S. Van Ness, which has buckled after the quake.
Horse carriages and cars park in front of Lafayette Park while a destroyed city looms in the background.
