WORLD’S FAIR 1915 - Reemerging like a phoenix from the ashes of the 1906 earthquake, the 1915 World’s Fair Pan Pacific Exposition, hosted visitors from around the world. Today’s blog post features postcards from the festival, including the Palace of Fine Arts, the only structure that survives to this day (then and now). The public library link takes you to a map, click on the locations to open period photos, of the original exposition. The fair’s centennial begins now and includes events such as lighting the Palace of Fine Arts/ Ferry Building along with events at the de Young and California Historical Society museums.
