Treasure Island, Then and Now–
Thanks for reading this blog! I am setting it up in order to begin recording my research, presentations, and photography relating to Treasure Island and the Golden Gate International Exposition of 1939-1940 (GGIE). I’ve chosen the “then and now” title because for years I have been taking photos of contemporary Treasure Island and matching them with collected photos from the years of the exposition, and using those photos during walking tours and slide lectures. Fortunately a few beautiful buildings still remain from the years of the fair, although all of the spectacular “Expo Deco” buildings are gone. Please check back here for updates! (I’m just getting started putting years of research online) and thanks for your interest!
