Palace of Horticulture by Night - Panama-Pacific International Exposition - San Francisco 1915 - Cardinell Vincent Co. Postcard - No. 2004


Night view of the Palace of Horticulture at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco in 1915. The Panama-Pacific was an amazing and totally resplendent World's Fair event from Feb 1315 to Dec 1915, held in the area that is now the Marina. It was meant to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal, but SF really wanted to show off its recovery from the 1906 Earthquake. This particular scene was photographed by Cardinell-Vincent Co. of San Francisco, official photographers of the Panama-Pacific, as well as a postcard company that sold California views. This card is unused, and shows the official seal of the exposition as well as being a C.T. Photochrom. C. T. Photochrom was a Chicago company that specialized in photochrom process which was a method of rendering a black and white photo into a color print.

CONDITION: Very good with just a bit of chipping on the corners, and some crazing in the surface of the finish. Otherwise very clean, and unused.

SIZE: 5 inches by 3 1/2 inches.

All my postcards are kept in postcard sleeves. I endeavor to describe their condition accurately. If you require more information please message me.
