GGIE Week - Ferry Building and Exposition Island

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: "More than 55,000,000 people pass through the portals of the San Francisco Ferry Building each year, where boat connections are made for the East Bay cities and for other rail connections in all directions."
