The 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and A.P. Giannini

Though you may not know his name, you have probably benefited from one of A.P. Giannini’s innovations. The History Guy tells the forgotten history of the life of A.P. Giannini and the creation of modern bank loans which was inexorably tied to a devastating earthquake in San Francisco.

The History Guy uses images that are in the Public Domain. As photographs of actual events are often not available, I will sometimes use photographs of similar events or objects for illustration.
