San Francisco earthquake replay, from 1906

I was in San Frnacisco with my brothers and our old college friends. We went to the penthouse apartment of one of the guys we used to go to school with. B_____ was joking with me about something when the whole building seemed to start up like a giant vehicle. Our friend was driving it out towards San Francisco bay harbor! We approached the water, and I looked south, off to my right. The city appeared to be in flames -- and they're weren't any skycrapers present. "What's going on?" I asked the driver of the building. "We've gone back in time," he replied. "What you're seen there is the old San Francisco earthquake of the last century."

Vast smoke cloud rises above San Francisco at 2:30 p.m. on the first day of the Great Fire following the Great Earthquake, April 18, 1906.
Then we seemed to be passing old-fashioned houses on the right. They would have been mistaken for cookie-cutter style apartment buildings of our day, except they all seem to have some art-deco elements embedded in the stucco of their front walls. The pilot/friend told us we were going to the place in the water where the earthquake originated (?? -- I thought the old San Francisco earthquake originated on land, on the San Andreas fault --??). Soon we were over water, and I woke up.
