Skyway at Seattle Worlds Fair

Inspired by It's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow blog, here is a nice image of the skyway at the 1962 World's Fair in Seattle with the neat mid century modern station and the large orange Union 76 sign. Even though not as collected or appreciated, the 1962 Fair did create some unique buildings and icons. And as with most Fairs in the 1960s had a great design and forward looking ideas.

It does seem like this is one of the "forgotten fairs"...of course there's still the famous Space Needle!

There was definitely some cool stuff at this Fair -- I'll be putting some of it up at GBBT pretty soon.
