Period Paper is pleased to offer a spectacular collection of some of the most coveted images of the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Any of these original images would be excellent for framing.
The Panama-Pacific International Exposition was a world's fair held in San Francisco, California between February 20 and December 4 in 1915. Officially, the exposition was a celebration of the completion of the Panama Canal and the discovery of the Pacific Ocean by the Spanish explorer Balboa, but it was also an opportunity to showcase the city's recovery from the 1906 earthquake. The 635 acre fair was located in the part of San Francisco now known as the Marina. The Tower of Jewels, 45 stories tall, was most recognizable building of this fair.
This 96+ year old Item is rated Near Mint / Very Fine. There is some very light aging in the outer white border and some light surface rub in the right margin of the decorative borderÐÐthe image itself is magnificent.
