4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Margaret D. Riddle on October 23, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Authors Stein and Becker and the History Link staff ([...]) spent three years in researching and writing this classic. It is the only book you need to read if you're interested in really learning about Seattle's first World Fair, the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition. Good writing, accurate information and excellent graphics make it also a very good read. A nice holiday gift idea.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By David C. Sherbrooke on December 6, 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is a surprise to me that there has been so little written about the
A-Y-P, at least until this book came out. The photographs are the best part, especially when they compare what is on the U of W. campus today with the exhibition buildings of 100 years ago.

I was hoping that the text would place a little more emphasis on the broader contest of the A-Y-P rather than inumerating the many "special" days honoring everyone from Japan to Pierce County. It seemed like much of the text reflected the boosterism of the local press. Oh well. . . However, if all you did was read the photo captions, this book takes you back in time and will be especially treasured by anyone who is a U of W grad or who has an interest in local history.

Wonderful description with lots of pictures of the first Seattle World's Fair in 1904. The fair was constructed on the current site of the University of Washington campus, which still includes a couple of the fair buildings. The pond in "Red Square" originally was part of a cascading series of ponds with a view of Mount Rainier in the background. Very complete, well designed and recreates the experience of attending the event that put Seattle on the map.
