5:12 AM - April 18, 1906
In the past 2 days I have seen the April 18th referenced to the day the earth shook this town.
Coppola owns this building now
Yeah. So where was I going with this. Oh yes. There is a gold fire hydrant in Delores Park and I found out that every April 18th it is repainted gold again.
That water source saved everything south of 20th street from burning.
San Francisco's architecture is so fragile. It all goes up so fast since most houses are made of wood. Now I have first hand experience: my apartment was in a fire that destroyed 24 units on July 8, 2005. It was very very spooky going inside the burned out building 2 days later to get what was left of my stuff.
