1906 Earthquake Kitchen

After the 1906 earthquake and fire, emergency restaurants were set up throughout San Francisco. Clever sleuthing on the part of Lost San Francisco readers helped locate the photo below to the corner of Army St & San Jose Ave (now the site of St. Luke's). I dug up more on it and David Nieto, man who started it and several other relief kitchens. (No word on what was on the menu, unfortunately.)
