DESTRUCTION SAN FRANCIS00 I
At The Jamestown Expoultion-Stu
pendous Disaster To Be Shown
Charles Frederick Stansibury. 1
Norfolk, Va., May 17.-The de
struction of San Franciseo by earth- u
quake and fire is to be niade the sub- 1
jeCt of the most elaborate mechanical -
spectacle ever devised which is to be :
seen next year at the Jamestown Ter- I
Centennial, near Norfolk, on the bor- t
ders of Hampton Roads, Virginia. The t
spectacle is to be oin the lines of the i
Johnistown and flalveston Flood pro
ductions. The New York man who a
cointrols a large tract of space for
aImuseent concessions at the James- I
towin Ter-Centeinlial exposition next 1
year said: "Artists and photograph- t
ers are already on their way to San t
Francisco to get the material for I'e- 1
producing the disaster in miniature, t
with fidelity of every detail. It is t
probable that the spectacle will be t
worked out under the direction of E. <
J. Austin, the English artist, who 1
made successes of the Johnstown flood <
at the Buffalo exposition and the Gal
vesto.n flood at the St. Louis Wotid's I
Fair, both of which are now at Coney f
Island. From a showman's standpoint 1)
the Frisco disaster offers great possi- i
bilities and we are going to take ad- a
vantage of them."1
