Special Exhibition The Magical Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915

Spencer Helfen Fine Arts is pleased to present an important historical exhibition: The Magical Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915, now online. 105 years ago a Magical City was constructed inside the City of San Francisco… that Magical City was the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE). The PPIE celebrated three important milestones: (i) the opening of the Panama Canal in August of 1914. The Canal assisted shipping by shaving 8,000 miles off the voyage from New York to San Francisco and eliminated the dangerous passage through the Straits of Magellan,  Perham Wilhelm Nahl, "The Thirteenth Labor of Hercules: Official Poster for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition,"
