The Yacht Harbor of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition was built close to Marina Green. From here, cargo was offloaded and moved to locations around the exposition grounds.

To get a better sense of how the exposition looked, watch this short film from the time of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Follow the Overfair Miniature Railway, enjoying views of the exposition grounds as you go. In the last minute, you’ll come to images along the waterfront and the harbor.

For more information about upcoming events in the centennial celebration of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, visit the website at http://www.ppie100.org for a host of resources, images, and activities for your enjoyment.
