Video: Rare archival footage of San Francisco days before the great earthquake and fire

Enjoy this archival film made by the Miles Brothers days before the April 18, 1906 earthquake and fire virtually destroyed the city of San Francisco. The earthquake and resulting fire are remembered as one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the United States. The death toll from the earthquake and resulting fire, estimated to be above 3,000, is the greatest loss of life from a natural disaster in California's history.
