Pageant of the Pacific:
75th Anniversary of the
1939 Golden Gate
International Exposition

June 12 - August 17, 2014
An exhibit in the Depot Waiting Room

The Golden Gate International Exposition created a magical city on Treasure Island 75 years ago.  The Museum and our friends have trotted out the scrapbooks and raided old  storage boxes for pictures, mementos and stories that recount the Treasure Island Fair in all its glory.  Tired of the long depression and tuning out distant conflicts, the San Francisco Bay Area threw a gigantic party for a few months before the inferno of war overwhelmed any lighthearted spirit.
