Biography

This scrapbook of newspaper clippings from San Francisco and Stockton papers offers few clues as to who created it, other than that it was pasted in a Crane Plumbing Company catalog and that the articles chosen reflect a Stockton woman's interests. The scrapbook has been styled "San Francisco Earthquake Scrapbook" because approximately one-third of all pages in the book are devoted to this topic.

Scope and Content

Identified in gold letters as "Crane Company. Plumbing, Gas, Steam, and Water Supplies, 1893" at 23 & 25 First Street, San Francisco, California, this 275 pp. illustrated catalog of plumbing supplies describes, lists and provides sizes and prices of fittings and equipment. The newspapers clippings pasted over the Crane Catalogue pages are mostly unidentified and undated. There are over 96 pages on the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906. Other topics include articles on Presidents' wives, President and Mrs. Mckinley, Queen Victoria, lectures, woman suffrage, society news, religion and the afterlife, food and beauty aids.
