This image looks east from Mint Hill (then called Clinton Mound) above Hermann/Laguna; Mint Hill 1906 gives more details, including many additional images before/during/after the fire. Left: Unknown publisher, mailed San Mateo 5/07/1906. This is the earliest post-quake mailing date of the cards in my collection (19 days after the quake). Center: Unknown publisher, unused, different margins but otherwise identical to previous. Right: American News, unevenly trimmed; addressed but never mailed.
