Expo 86 -- Vancouver Part 1

In late summer of 1986 I attended my one and only world's fair, Expo 86.  Here are some of the snapshots I took.

 As I recall we got there that morning just as it opened. It was obviously an overcast day.
Expo Centre: the entrance to the fair.  Somewhere I have a bronze figure of this.  It's now a science center. Having missed seeing the great 1960s fairs, I was eager to finally see a world's fair.  It was the last one held in North America. 






I believe this is Air Plaza's "Flight Dream" sculpture. 

 The Ramses Exhibit.
