Title

Spokane -- Expo '74 -- Views Before (#05)

Subject

Expo (International Exhibition Bureau) (1974: Spokane, Wash.)

Description

There was no thought of a world's fair here in 1966 when what was to become the site of Expo '74 was still a congested industrial area that blocked the city's access to the scenic Spokane River falls and rapids. Railroad yards and related warehouses and parking lots dominated Havermale Island, and smaller Cannon Island, which was turned into a children's park for the fair by Canada, and renamed Canada Island.
