EARTHQUAKE 1994 FIRST OF MANY IMAGES

2010 The Year of Valley Exploration Northridge100

Cracks in the exterior stucco of this apartment building are obvious, while the interior damage is indicated only by the dislocation of the window blinds.
Images of the Earthquake of 1994 - Gift to the Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Judi Greenberg 2010 (click on images to enlarge) This photograph was taken of an apartment house at 9907 White Oak Avenue in Northridge.

Rubble from 1994 Earthquake - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Terry and Monika Poe 2010 - Northridge100 celebration
Those who did not suffer losses in the 1994 Earthquake in the San Fernando Valley, will no doubt find it strange to see a photograph of a smiling family beside a giant pile of concrete rubble. But, for weeks and even months after the earthquake homes and commercial buildings not under repair did not have those heaps of debris. A pile of rubble announced that insurance had likely arrived and that rebuilding was underway. Here the family of Terry and Monika Poe in Porter Ranch pose with rubble marking the reconstruction of their swimming pool. For fun, the Poes shared this picture of the rebuilt pool complete with a new jacuzzi.
