In pictures: Jack London's 1906 quake journey
New perspective

Almost 100 years ago, on 18 April 1906, San Francisco was wrecked by a massive quake. Hundreds died.

Many are familiar with images of the world's first widely photographed disaster. But few have seen these pictures taken by US adventurer and author Jack London.

The images form part of an exhibition by the California Historical Society, which opens in San Francisco on 9 February.
