: My relatives lived at 497 Gough, and as I understand it, were burned out the first day of the fire. Family history says they camped at a park, and I was wondering which park would have been the logical choice for this address?

We have a refugee camp map available at:

Your address is about three blocks south of Jefferson Square Camp. There are a few photographs of the camp available, including the popular "House of Mirth."

We have a number of 1906 related links available at:

Or, you could just do a search on "Jefferson Square Camp" in Google or another search engine.
