Looking forward to Seattle!!
Next week I'm heading to Seattle for some book signings to publicize my newest book, which by no coincidence is about the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. So, to help get in the mood I thought I would post a shot I enjoyed of the Fair. This one should be of particular interest to fellow photography buffs as it shows "Morley's Miniature Camera Shop". Morley was the official photographic licensee for Century 21 and this image captured a few of the many products he had available. In the background and overhead is the Union 76 Skyride. I'm not sure why the young lady was wearing this particular outfit but it fits in nicely with the colors of the Skyride station.
