Seattle World's Fair Celebrates 60

 The Seattle World's Fair turned 60 last month   I touched on this on an earlier post on the Space Needle being painted its original color.    My parents took my sister and I to the exposition that summer, and I remember the Space Needle (of course), the monorail, and a clear elevator known as the bubbleator    I remember the next time we visited what was by then known as the Seattle Center, the bubbleator was sadly gone.  Many years ago, I was able to find a movie of my family riding the monorail. 

Jean Godden, former area newspaper columnist, wrote an excellent post on the history of the fair on the Post Alley blog.  You can read it by clicking here.
