San Francisco
Is No More
San Francisco’s 1906 Earthquake and Fire

Ronald G. Fick

San Francisco Is No More, comes from the letters of Antoine Borel Jr., a 27 year old banker born in The Great City. Telling his story as only a wealthy man could, he describes the demolition of his own bank by dynamite and the great loss of the mansions on Nob Hill. His own mansion, slightly damaged, was offered as the temporary home of the prestigious Pacific Union Club.

A First Person Account of the Earthquake and Fire.

"Houses are totally destroyed. Market Street near the ferries sank many feet. Van Ness near Vallejo sank down over four feet. Portions of the City Hall were destroyed, but worst of all was the fire. The whole city is destroyed — from the Ferry Building to the Presidio and from the Beach to the Potrero — every street went up in flames. The big mains of the Water Co. were broken by the shock, so there was no water downtown.”

— Antoine Borel Jr.
