The Panama Pacific International Exposition was the 1915 worlds fair held in San Francisco, California. Taking over three years to construct, the fair had great economic implications for the city that had been almost destroyed by the great earthquake and fire of 1906. The exposition was a tremendous success, and did much to boost the morale of the entire Bay Area and to help get San Francisco back up on its feet.    http://www.sanfranciscomemories.com/ppie/photos.html

The Panama–California Exposition was held in Balboa Park from 1915 - 1917, celebrating the opening of the Panama Canal. It was meant to tout San Diego as the first U.S. port of call for ships traveling north after passing westward through the canal. Many of the pseudo-Spanish constructions continue today as charming museums, fountains, gardens, and galleries.
