At a Glance

Join bestselling novelist and filmmaker James Dalessandro for a visual and story-filled journey through one of America's great expositions as he discusses the 1915 Panama–Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. The Expo covered 76 city blocks along a 2.5 mile stretch of the waterfront, with pavilions from all over the world. Over 18-million people celebrated San Francisco's recovery from the 1906 Earthquake, the newly-opened Panama Canal, miraculous advances in technology and the burgeoning Women's Movement.
