  1. These are still images taken from a pair of 1963 newsreels.
  2. A document from 1960 discusses the road work to be done in preparation for the Fair.
  3. Negative coverage of the Fair

    If a reporter wants to turn a positive into a negative, there's nothing stopping him. This Life Magazine article about the Pieta exhibition strikes me as a cheap shot.
  4. Fair-related advertising

    Some of the advertisements that ran in Life Magazine.
  5. Life Magazine in January 1938 ran this aerial view of Fair construction.
  6. I've scanned in some of the pages to the guidebook to the Golden Gate International Expo for your perusal.
  7. Over four years before the Golden Gate International Exposition opened, the fair was previewed in this article. I'm sure the headline will be disputed vigorously.
  8. This magazine featured some lovely color photos of the PPIE.
  9. This would really help with leg muscle strains!
  10. Interesting promotion as the gates closed for the last time:
  11. NYC Building in 1953.

    Photos from the Library of Congress.
  12. San Francisco International Airport has a wonderful exhibit of Art Deco items right now. These depict the 39-40 Fair.
  13. San Francisco International Airport has a wonderful exhibit of Art Deco items right now. These are from the Golden Gate Expo.
  14. Disney museum in San Francisco has Fair exhibits

    Seriously? That's excellent, Bill!
  15. World's Fair fans now have another reason to visit San Francisco! The Walt Disney Family Museum includes a substantial exhibition on Disney's participation in the 1964-65 Fair.
