Description
Photograph of a view of San Jose following the 1906 earthquake, showing damage done to Saint Patrick's Church, 1906. Debris spills from what was once the walls on the right to the staircase at center that leads to the arched double doors. Plants climb the wall on the left while a ladder extends over from behind it on the right. Several people stand along the sidewalk on the right looking at the remains of the church while a man in a dark suit and hat look on from the left with his hands folded behind his back. A wall of another building can be seen behind a palm tree in the background on the left while a row of signs stand on the far right.
