The Panama–Pacific International Exposition in 1915 was one of the most spectacular events every held ANYWHERE. Yes, I am talking about the one in San Francisco, California. It was said to be a celebration of the Panama Canal, but it was really a celebration of how the City by the Bay celebrated rebuilding and recovery from the 1906 Earthquake.
I’m fortunate to have a large collection of original postcards from this fabulous event. Click on the links below to see the lots. I’ll keep posting more themed groupings over the next few months.
