Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection consists of 47 photographic negatives with contact prints, largely documenting demolition work on the damaged Stanford Museum following the 1906 earthquake, including the lowering of the still-intact glass dome. Several images include groups of workers and the horse-drawn carts and wagons used to haul away the debris. Other subjects include university employee Fred Frehe, ("farm boss"), the demolition of the statue of faith, and several post-quake images of the campus.
