GGIE Week - Triumphal Arch at Night

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: "The graceful Arch of Triumph reflecting in the fountains of the Court of Flowers at the Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay. Through the Arch a glimpse of the Siamese umbrella lanterns in the Court of Reflections.
