Thought Seattle's 1962 World's Fair was the first? ...You're not alone.
Step back 100 years and experience a piece of Seattle's forgotten past. It's 1909. Seattle is on the cusp-shedding its rough frontier past, and embarking on a technological journey destined to become its legacy-a city of innovation, of vision, and of breathtaking beauty.
It is at this juncture that the young city decides to host a World's Fair. Its leaders dream big-aiming to put on a grand World's Fair in the spirit of Chicago and St. Louis before it. The fair is held on the burgeoning University of Washington campus against the stunning backdrop of Mount Rainier. Here, Seattle welcomed the world-and the world responded. Visitors walked among palaces fit for an empire, saw new inventions that would change the world, and mined for mirth on the Paystreak, AYP's Midway. Seattle staked a claim at AYP on trade to the North and across the Pacific. It marketed itself as a sophisticated metropolis eager to further America's opportunities across the nation and around the world.
The film is told through thousands of historical images, rare archival footage and contemporary interviews. Seattle's Forgotten World's Fair: The Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition integrates past and present by exploring the fair's historical reverberations.
