In 1915, San Francisco held one of the most fantastic World's Fairs the country has ever seen—the Panama-Pacific International Exposition.
Ostensibly to honor the completion of the Panama Canal,
the exposition went much further in its grandeur and broad scope as these photos attest.
These are authentic photos from the official expo photographers,
the Cardinell Vincent Company.
Most have the embossed stamp of the photographers
and are generally in very good to excellent condition with minimal warping, foxing, etc.
(which are quite common to photos that are over 100 years old).
