Water tank thrown westward. West shore of Tomales Bay.
Baily's pier at Inverness, southwest shore of Tomales Bay. Previous to the earthquake of 1906 this pier was straight. Its present form is due partly to restoration after earthquake injury but chiefly to the shifting of mud constituting the bottom of the bay. In the work of repair it was found that the pier had been telescoped so as to be 12 feet shorter than before the earthquake. Marin County, California. 1906.
