|Title||Bell System Pavilion exterior, Century 21 Exposition, 1962 |
|Photographer||Pacific Northwest Bell Telephone Company |
|Notes||On verso: The Bell System Exhibit at the Seattle World's Fair is housed in this imposing building -- more than two-thirds the size of a football field. At night, the illuminated wings seem to be "floating" in air. It is the largest single industrial exhibit at the Fair. Theme of the building, whose exhibits tell the story of communications and reveal promises for the future, is "Communications -- Key to Universal Understanding." Partners in the Bell System Exhibit are the American Telephone & Telegraph Company, the Western Electric Company and the Pacific Northwest Bell Telephone Company.|
The Century 21 Exposition took place between April 21 and October 21, 1962 and is also known as the Seattle World's Fair.
