Chamberlain, Don – “San Francisco Earthquake!, The” – [San Francisco Record Company]
Recreation/interpretation of the news from the 1906 SF earthquake and fires. Two side longs. Fact checked by the California Historical Society. Sounds are rumbling trolley bells, news announcer, voices narrating, fire. Mostly actors recreating news interviews about damage looting fires and rescue efforts. Mention of actor John Barrymore and one guy pretending to be Jack London. Laughable and horrifying at the same time.
