World's Fair Window Dressing

Greetings from Seattle! I came across this memorabilia in a card shop window. I remember as a girl receiving a post card from my father from the 1962 world's fair which he visited when his ship was in port. It pictured the Space Needle, which at that time had an orange colored top and looked like George Jetson lived there. Yes it's cliche, and the symbol associated most with Seattle, very much like the Tour Eiffel became for Paris after it's debut at a world's fair. If you click on the link to the right for the Space Needle Web Cam you can actually manipulate the camera at the top of the Needle to point in any direction you would like to look. Have fun with it!

Edwin - It is fun, and I especially liked the evening and night time views when I tried it last summer--great sunsets and city lights. It's available 24/7.

Carol - Thanks!

I like it too! I think the space needle is really kind of cool, as well as the ride up there in that fast little bullet train you got up there. The only thing I didn't like on the space needle is the elevator ride up the structure. It feels like the door could just open any time and ... well, a little scary.

But I love playing with quick cams, so quick, let's go find that link, Thanks! :)
