1939 World's Fair Bygone San Francisco - Step back into 1939 when the Golden Gate Exposition was on Treasure Island in the middle of San Francisco Bay. Hear the sound of fog horns and sea gulls as the lights dim over the amazingly detailed panorama featuring China Town, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard Street, Golden Gate Park, the Fleishshacher Zoo, and Playland at the Beach, all created by artist Garret Bock.

Be sure to view the 3-D pictures taken of the 1906 earthquake. They are amazing.
John Aaron's "Bygone San Francisco" features a curved panoramic mural of the Bay circa 1939 and is 7 feet tall and 24 feet long. Garret Bock's miniature version of San Francisco in 1939 is framed by Dionisio Ceballo's cable car designs.
