ALASKA YUKON PACIFIC EXPOSITION-SEATTLE'S FORGOTTEN WORLD'S FAIR
Step back 100 years and experience a piece of Seattle's forgotten past. It's 1909. Seattle is about to shed its rough frontier past and become a technological leader and the country's gateway to Alaska and Asia-all launched at the AYP. Held on the burgeoning University of Washington campus against the stunning backdrop of Mount Rainier, the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition (AYP) was when Seattle transformed itself into a sophisticated metropolis eager to further America's opportunities across the nation and around the world. Seattle welcomed the world-and the world responded.
Told through thousands of historical images, rare archival footage and contemporary interviews, Seattle's Forgotten World's Fair: The Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition integrates past and present by exploring the fair's historical reverberations.
