AbstractThe 28 February, 1925, magnitude 6.2 Charlevoix Earthquake occurred at 9:19 p.m. local time. The main shock occurred in the Charlevoix-Kamouraska area and was felt more than 1000 km from the epicenter. Damage was reported in the epicentral zone, as well as in the cities of Québec and Shawinigan. Chimneys and unreinforced masonry buildings, especially those located on unconsolidated deposits, were particularly impacted by the ground vibrations. Between March 1925 and July 1926, Dr. Ernest A. Hodgson, seismologist of the Canadian Dominion Observatory, made a total of six visits in the areas where damage was reported. In addition to documenting the damage, he also aimed to better define the epicentre position. He visited the regions of Charlevoix, Kamouraska, Quebec City, Shawinigan, and the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean. This Open File Report includes all pictures that were taken by E.A. Hodgson during his field visits. Some of them are evidence of damage and impacts on infrastructures and monuments, others are more of geographic interest. Finally, other pictures of damage from other reports are also included.
