    The Relief Camps for Refugees from the San Francisco Earthquake and Fire album contains 25 photographic prints taken in 1906 by San Francisco photographer Charles Weidner. The album documents the relief camps constructed for refugees from San Francisco's 1906 earthquake and fire. The album primarily features views of the grounds of the refugee camps at such locations as the Golden Gate Park Speedway, Lobos Square, Twentieth and Pennsylvania Streets, Franklin Square, Jefferson Square, Hamilton Square, Washington Square, Precita Park, Columbia Square, the Richmond District, South Park, Mission Park, Portsmouth Square, and Camp Ingleside. The album also pictures many refugees, the interiors of many camp buildings, camp cottages in horse-drawn transport, the Land and Building Department office at Union Square, and the Native Sons Hall, which served as the Relief Headquarters building.
    All prints in the album are captioned and labeled "Weidner Photo, S.F." A few pages in the album are unused.
