Abstract: San Francisco hosted the Panama Pacific International Exposition in 1915. Officials from the Exposition printed postcards for the tourists who visited the Exposition. Because San Francisco suffered a major earthquake in 1906; and the earthquake destroyed many buildings, the postcards show temporary buildings built only for this Exposition. The buildings were torn down after the event. These postcards supplement other publications from the Panama Pacific International Exposition in Honnold-Mudd Library's Special Collections.
