the amazing feat as
workers raise the shack!
Sunset District Neighbors and SF history buffs gathered at 4329 Kirkham
Street near 47th Avenue, where workers removed four 1906
Earthquake Shacks. Fewer
than 25 remain of the 5000 shacks that were retrieved from camps following
the City's recovery from the 1906 Earthquake and Fire. Members of the
Western Neighborhoods Project spearheaded today's effort to relocate the
Kirkham shacks to property owned by the San Francisco Zoo. There, the shacks
will be renovated for use during Centennial celebrations next year.
