Long Lost 1906 Earthquake Footage Screened for First Time Since Its Original Recording [in]
KSRO ^ | April 16, 2018 | unattributed

Some movie goers may still be reeling after seeing some very rare footage of San Francisco around the time of the 1906 earthquake. A small crowd of people turned up at the Edison Theater in Fremont Saturday to view the premiere of a nine-minute film of the devastation. The footage from the San Francisco-based Miles Brothers film studio was discovered at the Alemany Flea Market last summer after being missing for more than a century. Anniversary of the quake, which destroyed much of Santa Rosa too, is Wednesday.

Gentlemen’s Agreement of 1907
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gentlemen%27s_Agreement_of_1907

[snip] ...an informal agreement between the United States of America and the Empire of Japan whereby the United States would not impose restrictions on Japanese immigration, and Japan would not allow further emigration to the United States. The goal was to reduce tensions between the two powerful Pacific nations. The agreement was never ratified by Congress and was ended by the Immigration Act of 1924. [/snip]

So interesting watching that video and realizing many of those in the video remember when Lincoln was shot just 41 years earlier. Not as children but as young adults.

Here's something trivial along those lines... four heads on Mt Rushmore... When Washington was President, Jefferson was already alive, obviously, but was alive during Washington's time in office. Lincoln was born while Jefferson was President. And Teddy Roosevelt was alive (and pretty young) during Lincoln's time in office. Alas, Ronald Reagan's head belongs up there, but he was born in 1911, TR left office in 1909. :^)

He gets his own mountain -- he'll be portrayed recumbent, in a tailored business suit, grinning, smokin' a big Cuban cigar, to commemorate his having rid the world of the Castro infestation.
