|Title||Pay Streak at Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, Seattle, 1909 |
|Photographer||Harwood, Frank M. |
|Caption||Visitors to the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition crowded to the concessions on the Pay Streak. Here they could enjoy exciting rides, visit a reconstruction of the Streets of Cairo, buy snacks at the Tokio Cafe, and look at native people of the Philippines in a reconstructed village. The Pay Streak was named after concentrated streaks of gold or other valuable ore.|
