  2. Wonder how much it moved on Good Friday 1964?


  3. It's funny you mentioned that - the first place I'd ever heard of them was when I was looking through online pictures of the 1964 Good Friday quake, over 15 years ago. They suffered quite a bit of damage in the quake. If you go here:

    And search on "alaska sales and service", you'll find 22 pictures. Sadly, that site has changed a lot - when I first went looking through it back in '99 or so, it was called "EQIIS" (Earthquake Image Information System), and you could download high-res image. But several years it became a subscription site; you can search and see thumbnails, but if you want to download pictures, you have to register and pay $25 a month. And even then they limit you to 20 pictures per month. A rip-off, especially considering that it's run by a public university (UC Berkeley).
