San Francisco's Panama-Pacific International Exposition (Images of America) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exhibition celebrated the opening of the Panama Canal, the rebirth of San Francisco after the disastrous 1906 earthquake, and the world community in general. It was a festive time and one that transformed the swampy San Francisco waterfront into elaborate grounds for sculptures, playgrounds, fountains, and national pavilions. Some say it was the most successful world's fair ever held, bringing together disparate cultures as no other event before or since. Lasting 10 months and covering 635 acres over what is now the city's Marina District, the fair remains in evidence today at the famed Palace of Fine Arts, the only extant structure and a popular and much-photographed local landmark.

About the Author

San Francisco historian Dr. William Lipsky, author of San Francisco's Midwinter Exposition and San Francisco's Marina District, shares here a stunning collection of Pan-Pacific photographs and memorabilia.
