I've long been fascinated by World's Fairs. I've been lucky enough to have attended several myself and have been collecting photos from them for years. I've even written books on some of them, as listed on my site www.worldsfairphotos.com.

Things I wish I had seen in person - Part 1
The "Tower of the Sun" was the theme structure for the 1939-1940 Golden Gate International Exposition in San Francisco. The elegant structure was designed by Arthur Brown, Jr., who was also responsible for the San Francisco City Hall and the Court of Horticulture at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition.
