Badly Shook Up

This postcard shows a scene in Yosemite, but it was sent from Oakland, California.
The message reads:
Dear friend.
We are saved but badly shook up are on the move.
Regards from your friend Kluske
This card was a bit of a mystery to me until I took a closer look at the date. April 22, 1906 was just four days after the San Francisco earthquake.


  1. Holy moley!!!! Now there is a postcard with history. A mite shook up? Only one of the top ten earthquakes in the USA!

  2. Wow! I have to ditto Viridian's comment! I experienced the 1986 California quake. I can't even begin to imagine anything bigger than that one! Welcome to Postcard Friday. I'm soooooo glad that you joined!

  3. Very interesting. I never would have known when the earthquake was.
