Age 5

The Fort Tejon earthquake, on January 9, 1857, registered at 7.9, making it one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded in the United States. Only two people were killed, largely due to the sparse population in the area where the earthquake occurred. As a result of the large scale shaking, the Kern River was turned upstream and fish were stranded miles from Tulare Lake as the waters were rocked so far from its banks.
1867 · Gas Street Lamps Installed

Age 15

The Los Angeles Gas Company installed 43 gas street lamps on Main Street. A lamplighter rode on horseback at dusk to light the streetlights. By 1873, 136 gas lamps had been installed in Los Angeles.
