Shawn Clover’s ‘1906 + 2010: The Earthquake Blend’ provides a visual look at the historic development of the San Francisco landscape. 1906 marked a tragic year for the state of California as a devastating earthquake took the region by storm. Clover has contrasted this calamitous point in time with the city’s current vibrancy, now known as the leading incubator of cultural, political and technological breakthroughs. 

Clover assures viewers of 1906 + 2010: The Earthquake Blend’s authenticity. The depressing images of collapsing buildings and fallen horses have been juxtaposed here with impressive infrastructure and briefcase-toting residents, and though the snapshots may be different in several regards, they are nonetheless united by way of their exact location.
