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.
