GGIE Week - Court of the Moon

All this week, I'm celebrating the Golden Gate International Exposition, which was held on an artificial island near San Francisco in 1939-1940. From Monday through Friday I'm opening up my postcard collection to share some of my favorite images from that exposition, the Pacific Coast's answer to the 1939-40 NYWF.

Quoting from the back of the card: "Court of the Moon at the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay. Center, the Tower of the Sun; left, the Palace of the Mines, Metals and Machinery; right, the Palace of Homes and Gardens.
