Seattle World's Fair Remembered

Here's a cultural snapshot of life and the size of the event.  1962, JFK, Camelot, hope, possibilities, idealism, at the 11th hour of sweeping social change in the 1960's 

These two photos are time capsules of an event  that made legends in a very innocent time. President Kennedy was dealing with the "Bay of Pigs"  The entertainment world all journeyed here to perform.  Most notable, Elvis Presley made the movie "It Happened at the World's Fair"  This Water Ski show at Memorial Stadium, none other than a Hydroelectric exhibit.

All the photos of fair-goers reflect a culture of "Dressing in Sunday Best"  Someone's Aunt Helen, surely showing off Seattle in Winnipeg!
