Debris

Well, not all of these are necessarily natural destruction. (and some of them have been featured here before.... what? They're awesome and deserve as much air time as possible!) But now that the flooding is subsiding, there's only one thing to do:

KEEP CALM
AND
DRINK TEA!
1944 London in June

And a train for Jilly beansTALK
1895 Paris in October

1906 San Francisco Earthquake
During (look at that woman's smile!)


After
Sorting rubble in Nob Hill


All Quiet on the Western Front


1944 Hartford Circus Fire
(Save the Elephants!)


1894 The Burning of Cliff House, San Francisco


World War I
Pillage, burn, repeat


And to end on an 'up' note (sort of...)
1912 Titanic Survivors boarding the Carpathia


I promise that my next set of photos will be happier!

Ditto on what Jill said. The train photo is pretty cool in a tragic sort of way.
