The San Francisco Earthquake and Fire of April 18, 1906, shown in Arnold Genthe’s iconic photograph on the left, will be explored at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Tracy Transportation Station. The program, sponsored by the Tracy Historical Museum, will feature filmmaker and author James Delessandro, who will present his award-winning documentary film “The Damnedest Finest Ruins.” Narrated by Peter Coyote, the film uses silent-film footage, rare photographs and interviews. Delessandro will be present at a reception following the showing. Archival photographs from the Edith Irvine Collection will be on display. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students. Seats can be reserved by phoning the historical museum at 832-7278.
