“T” is for Tower of Jewels

The Tower of Jewels of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition was described by Ansel Adams as a huge geegaw and many people agreed with him. Whether liked or disliked, the tower–at 435 feet high–stood high above the city and was even visible seventy miles out to sea according to one report.

As one of the few buildings at the PPIE which had a steel interior frame, it’s size fluctuated as much as a few inches depending on the weather.
