The Seattle World's Fair...
It was the coolest thing happening in 1962.
I know, because I was there!
I was ten years old.
Below is a collage of the posters, magazines
and a coloring book that I have as souvenirs.
I really don't have any photos of my family at the fair,
as my father had all film developed as slides.
Sunset magazine was, and still is, a very
popular magazine in the Pacific Northwest.
Can you believe it was only 25 cents?
Seattle was also host to a
Worlds Fair in 1909.
It was also known as the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition.
It was held in Seattle to publicize the development
of the Pacific Northwest.
The fairgrounds later became the setting for
the University of Washington campus.
Now, back to the future...
My daughter and two of my grand kids went to the Seattle Center earlier this week and I have pictures to share!
and they had such a good time!
I see variations of is all the time.
Notice the beautiful blue skies? Oh how I wish I was there!
♫ The bluest skies I've ever seen are in Seattle ♫
Do you remember that song?
Do you remember the TV show
"Here Come The Brides"?
The Space Needle is 605 feet tall and has an observation deck at the very top, below that is a revolving restaurant and then towards the bottom is a coffee shop.
The monorail travels from the Seattle Center to the Westlake shopping center in downtown Seattle which is about one mile.
I really LOVE to go shopping in the BIG department stores in a city. The newer malls just don't have the same atmosphere.
Nordstrom originated in Seattle and it is
the largest of all their stores.
Their Anniversary Sale is going on now...
Have you ever taken a ride
on a monorail?
This is a short film about two hyperactive teens
The first half is about riding the monorail and the last half is about all the new phone innovations.
Really pretty interesting!
