Old Mint 5th & Mission (parking available at Fifth & Mission Garage)
In just two years, San Francisco will observe the centennial of the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, a celebration of the completion of the Panama Canal and San Francisco’s rebirth after the 1906 earthquake and fire. Join architectural historian Laura Ackley as she details the period from 1904, when department store magnate Reuben Brooks Hale first proposed a San Francisco world’s fair, through the tumultuous first decade of the 1900s to the final site selection in 1912. Ackley will present dramatic images of each phase of the Exposition’s creation, including stereoviews, official photographs, souvenirs, magazine articles, telegrams, lantern slides, and postcards.
Bring your friends and neighbors and introduce them to SFMHS and all we have to offer them!
