In 1915, San Francisco held one of the most fantastic World's Fairs the country has ever seen—the Panama-Pacific International Exposition.

Darvill's Rare Print Shop was located in San Francisco in the late 1920s through the 1930s and our founder, Fred T. Darvill, Sr., amassed a huge collection of original PPIE photos.
We are proud to offer them here.
The photos below are the original 1915 P.P.I.E. photos that were printed on heavy photo paper and would have been sold to fair-goers. They are not modern reproductions!
