Aftershock! Voices from the 1906 Earthquake and Fire. Great Hall, April 1 - August 13, 2006.

This journal, "Organized Labor: Official Organ of the State and Local Building Trades Council of California" "Reconstruction Edition" has 80 pages and a pink paper cover. Well illustrated with scenes of San Francisco reconstructed after the earthqauke and fire of 1906. Schools, hotels, banks, firehouses, streets appear to tell the story of the city re-born. There's lots of advertising, everything from California Fig Syrup, to centrifugal and turbine pumps to fireproofing and Otis elevators. The role of labor in the rebuilding of San Francisco is prominent in the articles.
