Hoyt Earthquake Photograph Collection
The earthquake photographs show scenes of downtown Santa Rosa immediately following the earthquake, including the damaged courthouse with its fallen dome, the Santa Rosa Savings bank still standing, people in front of their damaged homes, work crews and militia restoring order, and flatbed trains removing debris from Fourth Street. Henry Hoyt appears in several of the photographs.
