Earthquake damage on the Pike. The facade of a building in the foreground has fallen away completely, and fallen bricks cover the street. On the right is a street lamp whose large central bulb has come off, and is on a bench in the foreground. Signs on the buildings, some of them hanging askew, advertise "Down's Wonder Soap and Cosmetics,"Sadoc Master Tonic adds long life & health," and "Gift Souvenirs."
