Last Known Survivor of the San Francisco Earthquake Dies

This weekend, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Jeanette Scola Trapani died; she was thought to be the oldest survivor of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. This is not the first time that the oldest known survivor has died, but at some point they will be right because these survivors are now very old.  Jeanette Scola Trapani was only four when the disaster happened, but that still meant she was 107 when she died. And despite her young age at the time, she remembered the earthquake.

As a tribute to Jeanette Trapani and all of the other survivors, I'm posting a few postcards from the earthquake.
